Each year, the Board of Water Supply (BWS) seeks sponsors for its annual Water Conservation Week Program. Major components of this water education program are the annual poster and poetry contests, which highlight a water-conservation related theme, and publication of a 12-month calendar that features winning contest entries.

This includes caring for Oahu’s watersheds, preserving and protecting the island’s finite water supply, and repairing and replacing the aging infrastructure.
