DHHL News Release: Anahola Water System Temporary Water Shut Off

Posted on Mar 14, 2022 in Latest Department News, Newsroom

(Anahola, Kauaʻi) – The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL), through its contractor Kaʻiwa Construction, is scheduled to conduct improvements to a main water line along Hokualele Road in Anahola, Kauaʻi that will cause a temporary interruption in water service.

Work will be conducted from 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, 2022 through 5:00 a.m. Thursday, March 17, 2022, weather permitting.

Affected customers are asked to store water and adjust schedules accordingly. Kaʻiwa Construction will have a water wagon available. Area residents should also expect construction noise and slightly slower traffic conditions during the scheduled construction period.

The temporary water service interruption is a portion of DHHL’s $12 million capital improvement project for its Anahola Water System.

DHHL maintains four water systems statewide. Those water service areas are in Anahola, Kauaʻi; Hoʻolehua and Kalamaʻula, Molokaʻi; and Kawaihae and Puʻukapu, Hawaiʻi Island.
