Water will be temporarily shut off along a section of Akoni Pule Highway starting tonight, Oct. 27, to install a new waterline connection for the Halaʻula Well Development.

The shut-off is scheduled to begin at 11 p.m. and continue until 3 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28. Areas affected along the highway run from Iʻole Road to Akana Place, including Halaʻula-Maʻulili Road, Old Halaʻula Mill Road, Maʻulili Loop, Niu Lane, Greensbank Road, Akana Place, Old Hālawa Mill Road and any private roads within the shutoff area.

The waterline connection to the Department of Water Supply is Phase 2 of the development. Upon the resumption of water service, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned, during which time you may notice turbid and/or discolored water.

Customers may also notice trapped air in their plumbing, which will be released as water is initially 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 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.
