DWS Urging N. Kona Residents to Heed Water Restriction

On Wednesday, the Department of Water Supply said that little to no change in water usage in the North Kona area has been implemented by residents.

For several months North Kona has been under a mandatory 25 percent Water Restriction as four wells undergo repairs in the area.

DWS officials say that monitoring of usage has showed the residents are following the restriction request.

“It is extremely urgent that all customers reduce their water use by 25 percent,” an official release notes.

DWS urges residents to visit its website for information on what you can do to reduce your water usage.  You can also call DWS at 961-8060 for more information or to report misuse during normal business hours of 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
