We live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean....surrounded by water.

Figure it out.

How come the government always jumps on residents to conserve when they don't even fix the problems in their own backyard? There's a broken water fountain at the Stevenson softball field and the Board of Water Supply water waste hotline was notified over two weeks ago. The water is running out of the spigot nonstop and down the drain. They said they would notify the school and it's still broken. I know government works slow, procurement, red tape, etc. but come on people! In the meantime all that precious water is going down the drain. Go figga!

There's too many people living in Hawaii already. Theres not enough resources for the local people, only the rich people. This has to come to a stop because we are living on an island not a continent.
Yes, I'm glad somebody finally said it! The poor people need to leave so the rich can enjoy the island paradise they bought! Let's ship the poor to California. Maybe the Superferry can do a few midnight runs to drop them off.

The homeless fill swimming pools and wash their cars at the parks and boat ramps. When the city stops that, then they can ask me to let my lawn die. How about a ban on swimming pools and golf courses and housing developments, they are the real water-wasters. Uhtil that happens, I'll use as much water as I want to.

Didn't I just read about a big golf course being built in Ewa for the wealthy? How much water is going to be required to maintain the green? City planning and land use just doesn't make sense.
The golf courses and farms out there use reclamated water from the Honouliuli wastewater plant.

The residents of the State of HI try to abide on water conservation but these association(s) of the state see otherwise and cites homeowners of not watering enough. Should dissolve all the associations and allow homeowners take care of their residence. Have not seen any association keep up the grounds and yet cites homeowners for non compliance. As Joe Morgan said "Do as I say not as I do."

Residents being told to ration the water?? GET REAL. 7 million tourists come each year. We aren't the ones using all the water by a long shot.

Save water. Don't flush your toilet. Don't shower or bathe every day. Once a week is better.

I blame the families of 45 people or more. The shortage of water in the future will be hard on these women who produce such large litters.
