Accessible faucets at small boat harbors to be limited

HONOLULU (KHON2) — Boaters are asked to join the Department of Land and Natural Resources’ state-wide conservation efforts.

DNLR said because the year-to-date rainfall is well below normal in many places, Gov. David Ige issued a request for all State agencies to reduce water usage.

As a result, the DNLR Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation is limiting the number of accessible spigots at all small boat harbors.

“While I understand the challenges of reducing water consumption, the greatest reductions will come from curtailing irrigation and preventing waste of water,” DLNR Chair Suzanne Case said.
