HILO, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Residents in parts of Hilo may not have water service or could experience low water pressure on Monday due to a water main break, Hawaii County Civil Defense said.

The break was first reported around 11:15 p.m. Sunday in an “inaccessible location” in the upper Kaumana area of Hilo.

Civil Defense said the break affected customers in the Punahoa Mauka Estates subdivision and along Chong Street.

Emergency water spigots will be available off of fire hydrants in the affected area.

Customers are asked to restrict water usage.
