KAPA‘A — The Department of Water has scheduled a water outage for Kapa‘a Homesteads on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., the county announced Friday.
The shutdown will allow DOW’s contractor, Jennings Pacific, to connect a newly installed waterline to the existing system. The tie-in is part of Water Plan 2020, DOW’s comprehensive, long-range plan to replace or repair aging infrastructure. During the shutdown, water service in Kapa‘a Homesteads will either not be available or have low pressure.
Areas that will have no water service include Ka‘ehulua Road from Ka‘ehulua Place to the intersection of Ka‘ehulua and Apopo roads, and Kawaihau Road between Poloke Street and Pu‘u Ka‘a Street. Areas that will have low water pressure include Kawaihau Road from Pu‘u Ka‘a Street to Laipo Road and all subdivisions that branch off Kawaihau Road (Wai‘ale‘ale Estates), Kapa‘a Meadows, Pu‘u Ka‘a and Hulu Manu subdivisions.
Affected residents should prepare by storing enough water to meet their needs during the outage, the county announcement states.
DOW plans to provide a portable water tank near the intersection of Ka‘ehulua and Kawaihau roads and along Ka‘ehulua Road for residents who run out of water during the shutdown. Residents must bring their own containers to hold the water.
