Hoʻolehua Water Conservation

DHHL News Release

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) is asking all Hoʻolehua Water System customers to reduce their water consumption for necessary purposes only through the month of October.

Large quantities of water use, along with drought conditions, have impacted the Hoʻolehua Water System storage tanks. The tanks are currently below expected levels and the pumps are unable to keep up with the demand.

DHHL advises all customers to reduce their water usage by 25 to 50 percent using the following tips:

· Repair faucet leaks and water line leaks
· Turn off the faucet while brushing teeth
· Shorten shower time
· Install aerators and low-flow showerheads
· Reduce or eliminate watering of lawns or filling up “kiddie” pools

Customer efforts in reducing water usage will allow the tanks to replenish and avert the need for more restrictive measures.

The Department has mailed advisories to all affected customers. For more information, call (808) 620-9500.
