Affected ares include all services along Kīlauea Avenue between Puainako Street and Lanikāula Street, including Ohea Street, Kāwili Street and all connecting side streets; South Hilo, Hawai‘i.

Water will be temporarily turned off in the above-mentioned areas on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., to install a main valve.

Upon resumption of water service, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned during which time you may notice turbid and/or discolored water.
