Water line replacement work will require water service to be shut off for customers next week in portions of Kapa‘a.

The county Department of Water announced an overnight water service shutdown to allow contractor, Grace Pacific LLC, to conduct the work.

Customers located within the affected area are advised to prepare by taking the following steps:

  • Store water to meet their needs until service can be restored.
  • Notify neighbors, family and friends about the shutdown.
  • Those with faulty water heaters should ensure their water heaters do not empty during the shutdown.
