Low water pressure for some East Honolulu communities due to leaking transmission line

Some residents in East Honolulu are experiencing low water pressure at this hour, and have been since about 10:30 a.m.

The Board of Water Supply says there’s a leak on a 36-inch transmission line.

Initially, officials said they would have to shut off water for some affected areas. However, after further assessment, water service will not be turned off, but will remain at low pressure.

Residents of Queen’s Gate and Kalama Valley are asked to conserve water.

Specific areas that will be affected are: Ninini Way, Namahealani Place, Nahoku Place, Kalama Paka Place and the Kalamapuu Townhouses.

51 services including the 80 townhouses will have very low water service during repairs.

One water wagon will be located at the corner of Ninini Way and Ninini Place, and 2 roving water wagons will be in the other areas to assist area residents.

Traffic is not affected as the line is in a utility tunnel, not under a road.
