O'ahu's Recent Water Consumption Drops Notably

Sept. 19, 2003

Recent heavy rains led to a significant drop in water use on O'ahu this past week, the Honolulu Board of Water Supply reported.

For the week ending Wednesday, water use averaged 157.57 million gallons per day, nearly 9.5 million gallons less than the previous week. During the same week last year, water consumption was 170.25 million gallons per day.

Water use was down in all six districts on O'ahu, the water board said. The drop in water use and frequent rain helped to "nudge" water levels at key monitor stations, the board said.

The Board of Water Supply early this summer asked for voluntary water conservation because of drought conditions that have left water levels unusually low.
