HONOLULU — The Honolulu Board of Water Supply has canceled a four-month-old call for voluntary water conservation along Windward Oahu.
The need for conservation was due in part to a lack of spring rainfall.
On Aug. 31, the board asked Windward Oahu water users to reduce water use by 10 percent.
Dean Nakano is the board's deputy manager and chief engineer.
He says by practicing conservation measures, residents averted mandatory water restrictions, allowing the water supply to last through an unusually dry period.
Nakano says key windward water sources had shown signs of stress, but with conservation efforts and recent rainfall, the amount of pumped water has been reduced.
