Posted September 23, 2020, 6:00 AM HST ·Updated September 22, 5:11 PM

A water service shutdown is scheduled for a portion of Hanapepe Road; between Ko Road and Hana Road, and includes approximately four customers on Kona Road in Hanapepe.

According to the Department of Water, the service will be turned off Sept. 29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting, in order to connect a new six-inch mainline to the existing 12-inch main and relocate two service meters as part of the Hanapepe-Ele’ele Water Systems Improvements Project.

Customers located in the affected area are advised to prepare for the service shutdown by taking the following steps:

-Store enough water to meet your needs until water service can be restored.
-Notify family, friends and neighbors of the scheduled shutdown.
-Those with faulty water heaters should ensure that water heaters do not empty during the shutdown.
-Businesses should plan accordingly before and during a water service shutdown.

A trailer-mounted water tank containing potable water will be located near the intersection of Kona Road and Hanapepe Road. Customers must bring their own containers to fill-up if needed.
