County Reports Water Main Break on Kalaniana‘ole Street in Hilo
Water customers on Kalaniana‘ole Street, from Kōlea Street to Leleiwi Street and including side roads, in Hilo are being notified about a water main break.
Customers in the affected area could experience no water or low water pressure while crews with the county Department of Water Supply repair the water main. Repairs are expected to be completed later Wednesday. Updates will be issued as necessary and can be viewed online.
All affected customers are asked to conserve water until service is restored. They also are reminded to follow the recommendation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content as a temporary substitute for washing hands with soap and water.
When water service is restored, affected customers might notice trapped air in their water lines or turbid water. These are temporary conditions that can be resolved by running the water for several minutes until clear.
