The Kauai Department of Water is asking residents from Haena to Wainiha to conserve water for two months while the county rehabilitates the 100,000-gallon tank that serves the area.
The project is expected to continue through August.
Smaller temporary tanks will provide water to the area. Due to limited capacity, water conservation is necessary, county officials said in a news release.
Officials are asking residents to use water for essential needs, such as cooking, bathing and toilet flushing, to refrain from activities such as car washing and reduce outdoor irrigation.
The county is asking residents to notify their neighbors of the request and encourage their participation.
The project is part of the department's long-range plan to replace or repair aging infrastructure.
For more information, call the department at 245-5461 or police dispatch at 241-1711 after business hours.
