Water pump work needs conservation
Residents from Kaunakakai to Kawela are asked to conserve water from Monday to mid-November as the Department of Water Supply begins a scheduled pump and motor replacement for the Kualapuu Well.
The existing pump and motor were last replaced more than 11 years ago and the replacement is preventative maintenance, the department said. If a failure were to occur, replacing the pump and motor could take eight weeks.
During the shutdown, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands will supply water to the county system from its two wells.
For questions or if a water-related problem occurs, call the 24-hour service line on Maui at 270-7633.
