The Kauai County Department of Water is asking residents in Hanapēpē, Eleele and Kalaheo to conserve water due to a power failure that occurred last night, which affected source wells in the Hanapēpē valley.
Department crews are working to make necessary repairs. Area residents are urged to conserve water and restrict water consumption to essential uses such as cooking, bathing, and toilet flushing, a county news release said.
The department also asked that residents notify their family, friends and neighbors who will be affected by the conservation request.
For more information, call the Department of Water at 245-5461 during business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
