Water will be temporarily turned off in the following areas from 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, to 3:30 a.m., on Wednesday, January 4, 2017, to install a new waterline connection for the Haihai Fire Station.

AFFECTED AREA: ALL SERVICES ALONG HAIHAI STREET FROM ‘IWALANI STREET DOWN TO KINO‘OLE STREET, INCLUDING ALL PRIVATE AND SIDE ROADS WITHIN THE SHUT-OFF AREA; SOUTH HILO, HAWAI‘I

Upon the resumption of water service, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned during which time you may notice turbid and/or discolored water. You may also notice trapped air in your plumbing, which will be released as you initially use water.

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 whose normal operation may be dependent on water pressure and/or water supply, and which might be harmed if automatically energized during the water shut-off. Please pardon this temporary inconvenience. If you have any questions, please call Carl Nishimura, District Supervisor, at 961-8790.
