DWS Continues Repair Work Along Kalanianaole Avenue
The Department of Water Supply has announced a temporary water shut-off along Kalanianaole Avenue, between Silva Street and Kauhana Street in South Hilo, on Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m. through Friday, March 13 at 12 a.m. This will be the second water shut-off in the area in the past week and a half.
Officials say the water shut-off is to conduct repairs to a leaking waterline, the same one worked on last week.
When water service resumes, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaning. During the process, customers may experience turbid or discolored water, in addition to trapped air in plumbing.
Customers are advised to take precautions to protect their property, including disabling devices that may be impacted by loss of water pressure or that may be harmed by being automatically energized during the shut-off.
Any questions should be directed to Carl Nishimura, District Supervisor, at 961-8790.
