Water service will be turned off in the area of Ka`u High and Pahala Elementary Schools on Wednesday, Oct. 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the county Department of Water Supply said today.

The shut-off is needed to make a waterline connection for the new Ka`u District Gymnasium and Shelter Project.

The affected areas include Puahala Street from Pumeli Street to Kamani Street, and Kamani Street from Puahala Street to Pikake Street. The school campuses will also be affected.

When service resumes, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned which may result in turbid or discolored water, as well as air trapped in plumbing systems.

Affected customers are asked to take precautions to protect their property including disabling electrical power to pumps or any other devices which may be dependent on water pressure or water supply, and which might be harmed if automatically energized during the water shut-off.

For information, contact Cyrus Sumida at 929-9111.
