Kawela Water System


Kawela Plantation Homeowners' Association owns the water system which services all KPHA properties and fire hydrants.  The KPHA water system is operated and maintained by KPHA employees who are certified in water operations and registered with the State of Hawaii. The water system is monitored and water is tested every day, in accordance with Federal, State, and County drinking water regulations. The Association owns the water system up to the water meter that is installed on individual lots, and the Association is responsible for repairs up to that point. Maintenance and repair on any part of the water system downstream of the lot’s water meter is the responsibility of the lot owner.

Problems involving the water system should be reported to Penny DeLuna at 808-553-4223. After normal working hours, problems should be reported at the emergency number 808-213-5084.

Requests for installation of water meters are processed through the KPHA office, 808-553-4223 (fax 808-553-3996). The Association encourages members to conserve our precious resource by diligently monitoring usage. In keeping with the commitment to reduce water loss through any leakage, lot owners will be notified if a leak is evident, and measures will be taken to stop the leak.

We invite you to read our Annual Consumer Confidence Report located in the dropdown box under Kawela Water System for specific details and information regarding the KPHA water system and operations. As always, we say Mahalo Lui Noa to all our staff for keeping our water safe, delicious and flowing smoothly! 

Mission Statement: Provide for the management, maintenance, protection, preservation, architectural control and development of Kawela Plantation, and to promote the health, safety and welfare of its members. By operating our water system in a professional and cost effective manner so as to deliver clean, safe, drinking water on a consistent basis we can protect our investment and consider future needs, based on full build-out. KPHA understands we share this valuable resource with the greater Molokai community and will always show our respect for the importance of this resource and the community in our actions. The Kawela Water System will provide safe, clean, and affordable drinking water to customers by ensuring the safety and security of its supply and the system, meeting existing and new regulations, and consistently improving operations.
