Water will be temporarily turned off from 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 30, to 3 a.m. on Friday, July 1, 2016, along Kauhale Street in Pāhoa, Puna District of Hawai‘i Island.

The Department of Water Supply will be working on the water main connection for the new Pāhoa Park Master Plan Phase 1 project.

Upon resumption of water service, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned, during which time customers may notice turbid and/or discolored water, as well as trapped air in plumbing, which will be released as water is used.

Affected customers are asked to take any and all precautions necessary to protect the customers’ property and facilities including, but not limited to, disabling electrical power to pumps and/or any other devices dependent on water pressure and/or water supply, which might be harmed if automatically energized during the water shutoff.

For more information, contact District Supervisor Carl Nishimura at (808) 961-8790.
