The Department of Water Supply reminds people in areas affected by the recent wildfires that they may obtain safe water for their drinking, cooking, and basic hygiene needs from a fleet of designated potable water tankers positioned at various sites in Lahaina and Upper Kula.
Tankers offering free, safe water are positioned at the sites listed below. Visit https://mauicounty.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=532ad3b6531c4a769f8bc3fdf7d5505cto view an online map of the tanker sites, which are shown as a green waterdrop.
Use only clean, dedicated, food-grade containers to transport water. Containers that have held food can transfer odors to the drinking water and should not be used for water storage. Wash containers thoroughly with dishwashing soap, sanitize using one teaspoon of mild liquid chlorine bleach per quart of water, and then rinse thoroughly. Fill containers to the top, leaving as little air as possible. Store in a cool, dark area. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers more information at www.ready.gov/water.
