The temporary interruption of water service is scheduled from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. between June 3-4 for customers connected to Anahola Water System 432. The shutoff will allow Kaiwa Construction to replace existing PRV stations on the eastern portion of Hokualele Road.

Customers in the impacted area are encouraged to be prepared by storing water for drinking and personal household needs. Although DHHL does not anticipate interruptions for lessee lots located mauka of the farmer’s market, the Department encourages all customers of Anahola Water System 432 to be prepared for unforeseen emergencies.

Prior to the overnight shutdown, a separate contractor, Aqua Engineers, will conduct an open/close test on the main valve to isolate the pressure-reducing station. This test is scheduled for Friday, May 28, between 9:30-11:30 a.m.
