Water main break turns street into river in Windward Oahu


The Board of Water Supply is responding to a water main break that cut water to dozens of homes in Maunawili.

The 12-inch water main break was initially reported at around 5 p.m. on Aloha Oe Drive.

Video sent in by a viewer shows brown water gushing through the street.

Roughly 40 homes do not have water at the time. BWS is setting up a water wagon for those residents.

Repairs will most likely last through the night.
