A water conservation request has been issued to Haena and Wainiha customers.

The Department of Water has issued an immediate water conservation request for customers located in Haena and Wainiha due to an electrical power outage that is affecting the area's pump station and well site. 

Customers are asked to limit their water use to essential uses only; such as cooking, flushing and sanitation use, in order to avoid a full water outage.
