The Department of Water Supply is asking customers in Kula from Kawehi Place to Kanaio to conserve water today due to a water line break that occurred late last night. An 8-inch main line was broken last night when a tree apparently fell on it. The break is in a remote area and DWS personnel are working on the repair this morning. The repair job is expected to take all day. Until then, water currently in the storage tanks is the only available supply and customers should use water for health and safety purposes only.

Two portable water tankers will be located at the DWS Waiohuli Tank site on Middle Road and at the telephone exchange on Kula Highway. Customers may bring their own containers to fill up with potable water.

Customers may also experience low water pressure throughout the day and are asked to call the DWS Service Line at 270-7633 only if a water emergency occurs.
