The water will be temporarily turned off in the above-mentioned area on Monday, June 5, 2017, between the hours of 9 to 11 a.m. due to a booster valve replacement for the Department of Water Supply’s Kahaluʻu Well Field.

Upon the resumption of water service, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned, during which time users may notice turbid and/or discolored water. Trapped air in the pipelines may be released upon initial use of water faucets.

Affected customers are reminded to take any and all precautions necessary to protect the their property and facilities by 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 shutoff.

The County asks for the public’s patience during this temporary inconvenience. For more information, call Robert Ravenscraft at 322-0600.
