The Kauai County Department of Water is extending a request for residents to conserve water in the Haena and Wainiha areas until mid-September.
The agency renewed its June 22 request because of delays in contractor Unlimited Construction finishing rehabilitation work on the 100,000-gallon Haena tank and the Wainiha booster pump station.
Area residents are asked to continue to conserve water and restrict water consumption to essential uses, such as cooking, bathing and toilet flushing, a county news release said. With the limited capacity of the smaller temporary tanks providing water service to the areas, conservation is necessary to avoid outages, the release said.
For more information, call DOW at 245-5461 during business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For emergencies after hours, call police dispatch at 241-1711.
