Water Restriction Notice Issued for Laupāhoehoe Water System
AFFECTED AREA: LAUPĀHOEHOE, NORTH HILO, HAWAI‘I ISLAND
This is a Department of Water Supply (DWS) message for Friday, May 27, 2022.
The DWS has issued an immediate water restriction request for the affected area until further notice.
Due to equipment malfunctions, DWS will need to haul all drinking water to meet customers’ water
needs. Thus, we are asking residents and businesses to reduce water use by 25 percent to ensure
everyone’s water needs are met.
Updates will be issued as necessary and may be viewed at www.hawaiidws.org.
Performing the following steps will help to conserve water by 25 percent:
• Wash only full loads of laundry and dishes.
• Check faucets and pipes for leaks.
• Do not let water run when washing hands, shaving, and brushing teeth.
• Reduce showering times.
• Use water-saving devices whenever possible.
• Use a broom instead of a water hose when gathering leaves and grass clippings.
Additional ways to conserve water can be found at www.hawaiidws.org .
Please call (808) 961-8050 during normal business hours, (808) 961-8790 for after-hour emergencies,
or email: dws@hawaiidws.org. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate
your understanding.
This is your Hawaiʻi County Department of Water Supply.
