KILAUEA, Kauai (KHNL) - Water service in the entire east Kilauea area up to Waipake on Kauai will be shut off next week due to a waterline installation project.
A 12-inch waterline will be installed at Kilauea Bridge as part of the bridge replacement project.
The work will begin at 10 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 6 and is expected to be completed by 4 a.m. the following day.
While the work is being done, there will be no water service at Kilauea School, along Kolo Rd., between Pukalani Place and Hookui Rd. and Place, Malulani St. and Place, and Liliuokalani St., between Kolo Rd. and Kahe St.
Residents affected by the water outage are encouraged to prepare by storing the water they need for this six-hour period prior to the start of the project.
Those who live between Hookui Rd. and Waipake are asked to refrain from using water for the duration of the work as storage tanks servicing the area will not have the capacity to be refilled.
For more information, please call the Department of Water at 245-5455 between 7:45 am to 4:30 pm.
