The Red Hill water contamination crisis is creating new challenges for the Board of Water Supply (BWS) and the community. When the BWS stopped using the Halawa Shaft and the adjacent wells to avoid further contamination of the underground aquifer, this reduced the amount of available water by 17.5 million gallons per day. BWS is urging Oahu residents, businesses and government agencies to reduce their water use by 10% to reduce water demand. What does this mean for new construction projects that may require more water use? Ernie Lau, the Board of Water Supply’s manager and chief engineer, offers guidance for the construction industry and practical advice to prevent more stringent mandatory conservation measures in this challenging period.
