The Hawaiʻi State Department of Health Safe Drinking Water Branch has granted final approval in designation of the new Wākiu Well C as a permanent water source for the Wākiu area, Hāna School, Hāna Medical Center and Waiʻānapanapa in East Maui.

As background, Wākiu Well C was already developed and scheduled to open, pending completion of the DOH New Source approval process; however, due to pumping issues and low pressure being experienced with the current well in the Wākiu area, the Wākiu Well C was put into use sooner than expected as an emergency water source.

Final approval has been granted and the emergency status has been discontinued.

Customers with questions regarding water quality, can call the Department of Water Supply Laboratory for more information at (808) 270-7550 and leave a message with questions and call back contact information. The Laboratory hours are Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Customers can call the 24-hour service line at (808) 270-7633 if any other water-related problem occurs or if there are any questions.
