Water main break in Kalama Valley

HAWAII KAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Board of Water Supply (BWS) crews are at an 8-inch water main break at 7548 Mokunoio Pl., near the insection of Mokunoio Pl. and Kealahou St. in Kalama Valley.

The main, installed in 1973, broke about 9:30 this morning.

Makai-bound traffic on Kealahou St is being detoured onto Huialoha St. as main break repair has forced the closure of the makai-bound lane of Kealahou St. at Mokunoio Pl.

Also, the BWS has set up a water wagon in the Mokunoio Pl. cul-de-sac to help provide an additional source of water, in addition to the hydrant spigot,  for 19 homes affected by this water main break.
