Frequently Asked Questions



Water Sources




This report by the Kaua`i Department of Water describes the quality of your drinking water, and where it comes from.  The Safe Drinking Water Act, a federal law, requires water utilities to provide water quality information to its customers every year.


Providing safe drinking water is a complex business, but you and your neighbors have a right to know the results of our water quality monitoring. Safe drinking water is essential to our community. Your water is tested regularly through our certified laboratories and the State Department of Health.


In summary, our drinking water meets, or is better than, state and federal standards.


A Source Water Assessment, intended to enable "well-founded, fair and reasonable decisions for the protection and preservation of Hawaii's drinking water" has been completed by the State Department of Health and the University of Hawaii.  For further information on this assessment, please contact the Department of Water at (808) 245-5455.
