Hanauma Bay to reopen Saturday following water line break, sewer pump failure

Hanauma Bay will reopen Saturday following a water line break and sewer pump failure.

The water line break occurred Thursday morning, and forced the closure of the bay’s commercial vehicle parking lot.

Then on Friday, the city says a blown Hawaiian Electric fuse triggered sewer pump failure, which forced the entire bay — all of the upper and lower facilities and the visitor center — to close for the day.

Officials aren’t sure if the two problems are related, however they say repairs are progressing, and everything is on track to reopen Saturday morning.

There were no reports of a sewage spill.
