COVID-19: Our Essential Employees Are Working Hard to Provide Uninterrupted Supply

Water systems are considered to be critical infrastructure, and our essential workers are still out every day making sure our customers continue to have a reliable supply of safe, high-quality water. On this page, we’ll begin introducing some of these team members who work to keep your water safe for drinking, cooking, and yes — handwashing. Check back soon as we introduce more employees.

Michael “Kalae” N.

Michael "Kalae" N. at workKalae, an Operations Foreman for Hawaii Water, regularly volunteers with the Hamakua Lions Club, the third-oldest Lions Club in the state of Hawaii. Every three months, Kalae and the Lions work to keep the town clean and beautiful. The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t stopped him from serving the community. In mid-April, with permission from local officials and while practicing safe social distancing, Kalae and the Hamakua Lions conducted their quarterly highway and town cleanup, cleaning a two-mile stretch of Highway 19 along the Hamakua coast, as well as portions of Honokaa town.
