The county Department of Water Supply will conduct a fire hydrant flow test from midnight-1 a.m. Tuesday, April 19, on Ali‘i Drive in Kona.


Water customers along Ali‘i Drive and Kuakini Highway, between Lunapule Road and Royal Poinciana Drive, including any side roads and lanes, are being notified about the test. The affected area might 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.

“Please pardon this temporary inconvenience,” DWS said in a press release.

Customers who experience any unusual problems during or after the flushing period can call district supervisor Joshule Johnston at 808-322-0600.
