The Kauai Department of Water has scheduled a water outage in parts of Waimea from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today to replace an aging fire hydrant.
A detailed map of affected streets can be viewed online at www.kauaiwater.org.
Water officials said that during the outage, affected customers should ensure that their water heaters do not empty and store enough water to meet their needs.
The department will provide a portable water tank near the junction of Alawai and Menehune roads for customers affected by the shutdown. Customers will need to bring their own water containers.
