Temporary Water Shut Off of Hoʻolehua Water System
(Hoʻolehua, Molokaʻi) – The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL), through its contractor Goodfellow Brothers, will conduct improvements to a main water line of Molokaʻi’s Hoʻolehua Water System beginning on January 16, 2023.
As part of these improvements, water service is scheduled to be shut off from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. on January 17 and 18, 2023.
Residents in Kalamʻula are advised to conserve water. Upon reactivation, customers may experience low water pressure until the system is fully pressurized. Affected customers are asked to store water and adjust schedules accordingly.
The temporary water service interruption is a portion of DHHL’s $37 million capital improvement project to upgrade Molokaʻi’s 80-year-old Hoʻolehua Water System.
DHHL maintains four water systems statewide. Those water service areas are in Anahola, Kauaʻi; Hoʻolehua and Kalamaʻula, Molokaʻi; and Kawaihae and Puʻukapu, Hawaiʻi Island.
For more information, call (808) 620-9500.
