Kauai asks Kalaheo residents to conserve water

Kalaheo, Kauai residents are being asked to only use water for essential purposes until further notice because of damage to the Kauai County Department of Water’s primary and backup wells.

Essential water needs include: cooking; bathing; and toilet flushing. 

Water conservation measures include: refraining from car washing; reducing outdoor irrigation; and using water wisely indoors and outdoors.

The Department of Water said crews are working on repairs, but it is not known yet how long the repairs will take.

The water conservation request is in effect until further notice.
