Maui County to build two water tanks in Ha'iku

Advertiser Staff

WAILUKU, Maui — The Maui Department of Water Supply has awarded Goodfellow Brothers Inc. a $4.9 million contract to build two water storage tanks in Ha'iku.

A 300,000-gallon tank will be constructed at the Kaupakalua Well site, next to an existing 200,000-gallon pump control tank. A new 500,000-gallon tank will replace a smaller tank at the intersection of Kokomo and Kaupakalua roads.

The bigger tank will increase storage capacity for the surrounding area and give the water department flexibility to pump water in either direction between Ha'iku and Makawao, according to a news release.

Construction is expected to start March 1, with completion in about a year.
