The county Department of Water Supply said today that service will be turned off between 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday in the Mountain View area to allow for a new waterline connection.

The affected area will be along Highway 11, also known as the Volcano Highway, between Mountain View School and South Kulani Road. The service interruptions will include residences on South Kulani Road and a few homes on the highway north of the intersection. Call Carl Nishimura at 961-8790 for information.

The department had previously announced that the Ahualoa area in Hamakua will be the focus of two separate water shut-offs this week, including one on Tuesday, as the county Department of Water Supply continues its improvements on the first phase of the Ahualua to Honoka‘a transmission waterline project.

The first interruption of service will be Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The area affected will be along the old Mamalahoa Highway from the Kapuna Road intersection to the Maunaloa Road junction. This will include Palilkekua and Pikake streets and Ka‘ao Road.

This shut-off was originally to be done Friday but was postponed because of rainy weather.


The second shut-off will be Friday, also from 8:30 a.m. to  2 p.m. It will affect the Old Mamalahoa Road, from the “Sawmill” water tank to Kinimaka Road. Affected areas will include all service along Kapuna Road and off the waterline connecting to Camp 10 Reservoir.


Residents may notice discolored water or air in their waterlines following resumption of service.

For information call Andrew Higa at 887-3030.
