HONOLULU — Officials on all islands are asking residents to conserve water.
Dry weather that began in early February has prompted the advice.
Su Shin of the Honolulu Board of Water Supply says groundwater levels are okay, but conservation is always encouraged.
There's more concern on Maui where water levels in the Upper Kula system are well below capacity. Officials imposed a 10 percent water restriction last summer for Upcountry Maui and a voluntary 10 percent restriction remains in effect for central Maui.
On the Big Island, water officials are asking customers to voluntarily cut back water usage 10 percent.
Officials on Kauai say wells are at good levels because of rain this month, but they also are advising conservation.
