Customers along Kona Bay Drive, including those in the Kona Bay Estates Subdivision, Kuakini Highway between Palani Road and Old Kona Airport Recreation Area, Makala Boulevard, Kaiwi Street, Loloku Street, Pawai Place, ‘Alapa Street, and Luhia Street in North Kona, may be affected by the test.

Slightly discolored and turbid water may be noticed by the listed areas for several hours following the hour-long test period.
