NANAKULI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Work continues overnight on a fixing a water main ruptured Tuesday morning on Farrington Highway in Nanakuli . Traffic was bumper-to-bumper most of Tuesday afternoon and evening. Residents along the Leeward coast have also been asked to conserve water.
Traffic on Farrington Highway is being contra-flowed between Nanakuli Avenue and Haleakala Avenue.
A private contractor working on the 24-inch main accidentally damaged it around 10:30 Tuesday morning. The main supplies 60% of the water supply to the Leeward Coast, so the Board of Water Supply (BWS) is asking families from Honokai Hale to Makaha to conserve water until repairs are done.
