Work to shut off water in Puuone Tract

Residents in a portion of Puuone Tract will be without water service for about 7 1/2 hours late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning for the hookup of new waterlines, the Department of Water Supply announced Monday.

The new waterline tie in will be on Pio Drive and Imi Place and should run from 10 p.m . Wednesday to 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

During the work, customers will be without water on Pio Place, Imi Place, Nana Street, the western portions of Pio and Imi drives and Liholiho Street between Nana Street and approximately Lihi Street.

Affected customers have been notified by the contractor and are advised to store water for the night if needed.

Customers may want to flush their waterlines for a short time Thursday morning to ensure that no sediment has accumulated in their waterlines during the project.

Besides the water issues, the department advises motorists in the area during the work period to drive carefully because local traffic will be affected.

Customers are requested to call the 24-hour service line, 270-7633, only if a water problem occurs.
