Opening and Closing Accounts
Hawaii America Water (HAW) accounts are typically NOT opened or closed by the customer. This is handled through the escrow process associated with the property transfer. This is because our service to the property is uninterrupted during the property transfer and, as such, the closing of an existing account for the seller must be accompanied by the opening of a new account for the buyer.
