BWS crews repair water main break in Waianae


Board of Water Supply crews have completed repairs to an eight-inch water main break in Waianae.

The incident was reported just after 3:15 a.m. Wednesday on Kawili Street near Ihuku Street.

According to a BWS spokesperson, water service was restored to 25 homes by 3:30 p.m.

However, the break caused a huge mess in the road.

“I thought it was raining when my neighbor called and told me I gotta move my car because there was a water main break, it was flowing like a river,” said resident Debbie Chun. “So I was trying to move my car up but I got stuck and my front tires were in a hole and he had to pull me out with his truck.”

A spokesperson says repairs to the road will likely last into the night, however crews are not blocking traffic.

Residents say this is the second break along the street in six to eight months.

All roads reopened at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
