Water shut-off notice issued for South Hilo
Water will be temporarily turned off in a section of South Hilo from 10 p.m. on Nov. 21 to 2 a.m. on Nov. 22 to make a water main connection for the Keawe Street Reconstruction Project.
The affected area includes all services along Kino‘ole Street and Kamehameha Avenue from Wailuku Drive to Haili Street, and services on Keawe Street from Kalakaua Street to Wailuku Drive, including services on Shipman Street, Waiānuenue Avenue and Kalakaua Street from Kino‘ole Street to Kamehameha Avenue.
Upon resumption of water service, the waterlines will be flushed and cleaned during which time customers may notice turbid and/or discolored water.
Customers may also notice trapped air in their plumbing, which will be released as they initially use water.
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.
Customers with questions may call Mr. Carl Nishimura, South Hilo District Supervisor at 808-961-8790.
