HONOLULU (KHON2) — South Hilo residents may not have access to water and experience low water pressure as the Department of Water Supply is repairing a broken water main.

DWS is asking customers who are affected to save water until repairs are completed, which is expected to be later this night on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Along with conserving water, customers are to follow CDC guidelines to use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content as a substitute for washing hands with soap and water.
When water is restored, residents may notice trapped air in their water lines or turbid water.
DWS recommends letting the water run for a few minutes in order for these problems to dissolve.
