Chiefess Kapiolani Elementary School to Get New Waterline

Hilo — Chiefess Kapiolani Elementary School will soon be getting its waterline replaced. The Hilo school recently received funding from the Department of Education for the project.

“Built in 1920, Chiefess Kapiolani Elementary School has a long standing history in the community. It is important that we maintain our schools and repair its aging infrastructure so we can continue to provide a safe learning environment for our students,” said Senator Malama Solomon, who represents District 1 (Waimea, Hamakua, North Hilo, Rural South Hilo, and Hilo).

The project was awarded to Central Construction, Inc. and will cost nearly $69-thousand.

The start date of the project has yet to be determined.
