The Department of Water Supply reports a boil water advisory has been lifted for all areas of Upcountry, Maui, after consecutive days of negative water sample results for trace amounts of E. coli bacteria.
The last remaining areas have been cleared, and residents on the Upper Kula water system are no longer advised to boil water as a precaution.
Maintenance on valves and waterlines will continue for the next few weeks.
The department will use chlorine for disinfection while maintenance is ongoing. Then, it will switch back to chloramines for water distribution disinfectant.
The Department of Water Supply thanks Upper Kula residents for their patience and understanding.
