The Department of Water Supply will conduct a fire hydrant flow test along Māmalahoa Highway on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, between  9 and 10 a.m.

Consumers along Māmalahoa Highway between Ha‘awina Street and Kalele Street, including all side roads and lanes, Upper Keauhou and North Kona will be affected.

Consumers in the affected area may experience slightly discolored, turbid water for several hours after the test.

Customers are advised to refrain from washing clothes and to store a container of water for their drinking needs until the supply of water is restored to normal.

Should you experience any unusual problems during or after the flushing period, call District Supervisor Robert Ravenscraft at 322-0600.
