Satisfying Your Thirst for Information

Welcome to the first issue of Waiwai, your source for water updates. Our goal is simple: to provide you with timely, valuable information on the Board of Water Supply’s operational actions we are taking in response to the Red Hill water contamination issue and other important information. We want to be transparent and clear — just like the water we deliver to O‘ahu residents and businesses.

In every issue, we’ll also offer practical water conservation tips, provide information on our complex water supply system that is easy for everyone to understand, showcase the heroes in our Board of Water Supply ‘ohana who are working hard to keep clean, pure water flowing to you, and share the insights and perspectives of others in our community.

We believe everyone deserves to be treated respectfully. We hope Waiwai enriches you and satisfies your thirst for good information!

Pure, fresh water enriches all of us.
We must take care of our water supply. There is no substitute for pure water. It is essential to our survival.

Wai is the Hawaiian word for water. Waiwai places a stronger emphasis on the value of this precious, treasured resource. Water was so highly valued among Hawaiians that it was like being wealthy. For this reason, waiwai is often translated as wealth. The underlying value of water has not changed since the early days of Hawai‘i.
