A fire hydrant flow test is scheduled on Thursday, Nov. 4, for customers along Ponahawai Street in South Hilo.

The Department of Water Supply will conduct the test between 9-10 p.m. Affected areas include Komohana and Kapiʻolani Streets, including all side roads and lanes.

The affected area may experience slightly discolored and 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.
