Water restrictions in effect
The County of Hawaii Department of Water Supply (DWS) reminds its Makapala customers that a Voluntary Water Conservation Notice for both residential and commercial accounts remains in effect until further notice.
The Voluntary Water Conservation Notice, in place since March 23, 2023, asks affected water customers to reduce water use by 10% to help the Department maintain an adequate water supply and pressure for customers’ use while it continues making system repairs.
Water conservation is necessary due to the failure of the water system’s only well. DWS is working to bring the well back online as quickly as possible and asks for customers’ assistance to use water wisely and not waste it.
DWS is hauling water to keep the water reservoir full and meet affected customers’ daily water needs. Water hauling will continue until the well is returned to service in early June. You will be notified when the Water Conservation Notice is cancelled, and normal water use may resume.
Performing the following steps will help to conserve water:
· Wash only full loads of laundry and dishes
· Check faucets and pipes for leaks
· Do not let water run when washing hands, shaving, or brushing teeth
· Reduce showering times

UH offers High School students summer workshop
In summer 2023, a cohort of 25 Hawaii high school students will take an in-depth look at the fast-growing field of national intelligence, and have the opportunity to network with industry experts from Hawaii-based firms. The Academy for Hawaii Intelligence Studies Summer Program (AHI-SP) is a free four-week course offered by the Department of Political Science in UH Manoa’s College of Social Sciences.
Running July 6–29, 2023, AHI-SP includes three weeks of online learning, culminating in a one-week in-person capstone experience on the UH Manoa campus. The program will introduce students to a wide variety of concepts including power and contemporary world politics since 1945, with an emphasis on the U.S. role. Simulation games, field trips and networking opportunities will occur during the final week at UH Manoa.
“We are excited to offer Hawaii’s youth this immersive experience in one of the state’s fast-growing fields. The federal government is adding hundreds of new jobs in national intelligence each year right here in Hawaii,” said Jairus Grove, AHI-SP program director, and associate professor and chair of the Department of Political Science. AHI-SP is open to qualified Hawaii high school juniors and seniors, and incoming UH Manoa freshmen statewide. Applicants must be Hawaii residents with a minimum GPA of 2.8, based on cumulative grades from the 9th grade through fall 2022. Expenses, including registration, tuition/fees, airfare and on-campus housing/meals, are paid through the Pacific Intelligence and Innovation Initiative (certain restrictions may apply).
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will earn college credits in the form of a 3-credit, university-level course in political science (POLS 120: Introduction to World Politics). POLS 120 is the first course in the Intelligence Studies course sequence currently under development at UH Manoa.
Students and their parents who are interested in learning more about AHI-SP may pre-register to attend one of the following online information sessions held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3, 2023 and Friday, May 5, 2023. Preregistration is required at https://go.hawaii.edu/XFG. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing Zoom login details. The deadline to apply is Monday, May 8, 2023.
