UPDATE – 10% Mandatory Water Conservation Kahuku Irrigation System

In accordance with §4-157-4, Hawaii Administrative Rules, the administrator-chief engineer has deemed that special conservation measures continue to be necessary to address a water shortage emergency.  Effective February 1, 2022, however, the Kahuku Irrigation System shall reduce the conservation measures from a mandatory 30% to a mandatory 10% cutback in the monthly consumption of irrigation water for all water customers.

Emergency repair work to the irrigation pumps continues and interruptions of water delivery and/or low water pressure may occur.

Irrigation staff will monitor water meters for compliance with the mandatory 10% conservation.  Consumers shall be assessed a surcharge of thirty cents per thousand gallons of water consumed in excess of ninety per cent of their average use as calculated by the administrator-chief engineer.  Non-compliance for overuse may result in water service being turned off.
