Water line construction project set to begin in Kilauea

KILAUEA, Hawaii (AP) - A construction project to replace Kolo Road's water line is being launched as part of a long-term plan to address necessary upgrades to Kauai's aging and deteriorating infrastructures.

The Garden Island reports the Department of Water announced the $900,000 Kolo Road Main Replacement project Monday. It will begin July 6.

The state-funded project will include 1,300 feet of pipe and will add a new water line into the Kilauea water system.

Department spokeswoman, Kim Tamaoka, says some residents will experience water shortage by the end of the project. She says all affected residents will be notified when a water shutdown is scheduled.

The project will also include installation of new valves, hydrants, meter boxes, along with pavement resurfacing and restoration.

The project is expected to be completed by January.
