HANAPEPE — An overnight water shutdown on a portion of Hanapepe Road, from Moi Road to Awawa Road, and from Hanapepe Road to Kaumuali‘i Highway, and some customers on Awawa Road, is scheduled from Tuesday from 8 p.m. to Wednesday at 5 a.m., weather-permitting, according to the county Department of Water.
The shutdown is necessary in order to allow contractor, Goodfellow Bros. Inc, to install a main line and conduct water-line work in the area as part of the DOW’s Hanapepe – ‘Ele‘ele Water Systems Improvements Project.
Additionally, partial one-lane road closures on Awawa Road and on Hanapepe Road, near the intersection of Moi Road and Hanapepe Road, will be in place.
Access to Puolo Road from Hanapepe Road and the Hanapepe bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic during the overnight work.
Customers located in the affected service area are advised to prepare for the service shutdown by taking the following steps:
• Store water to meet your needs until water service can be restored;
• Notify neighbors, family and friends of the shutdown;
• Monitor water-service announcements online via facebook.com/KauaiDOW.
Those with faulty water heaters should ensure that heaters do not empty during the shutdown.
