Water main break closes roads, school in Hawaii Kai

Parents of students at Kamilo'iki Elementary School were being called to pick up their children ahead of schedule on Wednesday after a water main break knocked out service to the school and closed roads in the area.

According to Honolulu Police, Hawaii Kai Drive has been closed between Ahukini Street and Lunalilo Home Road because of the incident. Town-bound traffic is currently being rerouted onto Ahukini St. to bypass the main break site.

According to the Honolulu Board of Water Supply, the break appears to be in an area where an 8-inch water main connects to a 12-inch water main.  Crews are in the process of excavating and will be able to pinpoint the break once they reach the main.

The Board of Water Supply also says that more than 200 homes are estimated to be without water as a result of the water main break.  Customers who are currently without water service may call the BWS at 748-5000 to request a roving water wagon be sent to their area.
