UPDATE: Maui county lifts water conservation request

KHON2 News

Department of Environmental Management officials report that a Maui County contractor broke an existing 20-inch sewer force main around 2 p.m. at a Wahikuli construction site.

The break  forced the Lahaina 3 Pump Station to be shut down for repairs which affected all Lahaina residents from Puamana to the Lahaina Civic Center. The repair has been completed as of Tuesday evening.

Residents were asked to conserve water usage but residents may resume regular water usage.

There were reports of overflows happening and as a result crews closed all Lahaina beaches from Mala Wharf to Canoe Beach.

The beaches remain closed overnight as a precaution.
