Water conservation top of mind for some hotels, tourism businesses

“Every drop of water saved is a help to avoid us getting into mandatory conservation measures during the summer,” said Ernie Lau, chief engineer for Honolulu’s Board of Water Supply.Lau asked Oʻahu’s tourism and business leaders to do their part to conserve water during a webinar hosted by the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority last month. He told attendees that drier conditions, the continuing impact of the Red Hill fuel leak and high use could pose challenges supplying water to urban Honolulu and Waikīkī this summer.
