This is a Puna Geothermal warning system test information update for Wednesday April 27th at 8:00AM.

The Puna Geothermal Venture plant will be conducting a test of their facility emergency warning system to include the sounding of the drill rig warning siren today, Wednesday April 27th at approximately 11:30a.m.  This is only a test that is necessary to ensure the proper working order and function of their warning system. Residents in the immediate area and communities of Leilani Estates, Nanawale Estates, and the upper Kapoho and Pohoiki areas may hear the siren and we apologize for any disruption or inconvenience this may cause.   Again, this is a test of the facility’s emergency warning systems and no action is needed.
