Fire hydrant flow test scheduled along portion of Pu‘u‘eo Street in Hilo
Crews will conduct a fire hydrant flow test along a portion of Pu‘u‘eo Street in Hilo this week that could affect Hawai‘i County Department of Water Supply customers.
The test is scheduled between 9 and 10 p.m. Thursday between ‘Iliahi Street and Wailuku Drive, including side roads and lanes.
Water customers in the 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 drinking needs until the supply of water is restored to normal.
Those who experience any unusual problems during or after the flushing period can call district supervisor Carl Nishimura at 808-961-8790.
