Emergency East Maui Well Gets Final Approval For Permanent Use

The Hawaii State Department of Health Safe Drinking Water Branch has granted final approval in designation of the new Wakiu Well C as a permanent water source.

As background, Wakiu Well C was already developed and scheduled to open, pending completion of the DOH New Source approval process. However, due to pumping issues and low pressure being experienced with the current well in the Wakiu area, the Wakiu Well C was put into use sooner than expected as an emergency water source. Final approval has been granted and the emergency status has been discontinued.

If you have questions regarding water quality, please call the Department of Water Supply Laboratory for more information at 270-7550 and leave a message with your questions and call back contact information. The Laboratory hours are Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Please call the 24-hour service line at 270-7633 if any other water-related problem occurs or if there are any questions.
