Windward Oahu's ground water supply

The Honolulu Board of Water Supply made a media announcement today asking all Windward Oahu water users to voluntarily restrict water consumption by 10% due to abnormally low rainfall and declining well levels in Windward Oahu.

Voluntary restrictions include:

1. Restriction of irrigation and lawn/landscape watering to Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m.;

2. Postponing installation of new lawns (which require constant irrigation); and

3. Postponing car washes.

These guidelines take effect on Sunday, August 31, 2008, until further notice. It applies to all government agencies, businesses and residents on Windward O'ahu from Hau'ula to Makapu'u.

Here is a link to our website which has more information about what we are requesting from Windward Oahu water users:
