Replacement of a broken 6-inch valve on Lower Main Street will force water service to be shut off temporarily for 75 homes and 15 businesses from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today, the county Department of Water Supply announced.
The water disruption will be on Lower Main Street between Nakila Place and Pio Drive. During work, traffic on Lower Main Street between Ainahou Place and Waena Street will pass through a single-lane contraflow.
After water service is restored, residents and businesses may experience brown water coming from their faucets and should flush their waterlines from an outside faucet of their residence or business, the county said.
For emergency repairs or updates, call (808) 270-7633. For more information, contact Department of Water Supply Deputy Director Shayne Agawa at (808) 270-7816 or email Shayne.Agawa@co.maui.hi.us.
