KAILUA-KONA — The Hawaii County Department of Water Supply was hopeful it could return the Honokohau Deepwell to service by early next week, but those hopes were dashed by news coming out of the repair site Friday. DWS released a statement Friday afternoon indicating the spare motor it intended to install in the recently downed deepwell is “defective and cannot be used.”The motor, along with an accompanying pump, was diverted from a deepwell in Waimea, for which it was originally ordered.
HAWI — North Kohala has no shortage of rainfall, but as modes and methods of agricultural production have shifted since the end of the plantation era, many producers have found trouble directing that water toward irrigation purposes. Old infrastructure is breaking down. Several lateral transmission lines from the Kohala Ditch, through which some 40 million gallons of water may pass daily, were never revitalized after damage sustained from an earthquake that struck the island in 2006.
KAILUA-KONA — Hawaii County Department of Water Supply believes it can restore service to the Honokohau Deepwell by some time early next week. DWS finished extraction of the inoperative pump and motor as of Thursday. The department will now proceed with installation of the new equipment, diverted from a deepwell in Waimea as a back-up plan. DWS teams will work through the holiday weekend toward the quickest possible resolution.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
