A 16-inch water main borke near the Taco Bell in Waianae on Farrington Highway around 4 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

The break flooded sidewalks and the lawn of Waianae Satellite City Hall. It does not appear  to have breached the building.

The Board of Water Supply says 400 customers are without water, including Waianae Boat Harbor, Waianae Public Library, and the Waianae Regional Park.

The break has also closed two schools in the area, Kamehameha Preschool and Waianae Intermediate, because they do not have water. Kamaile Academy is also without water.

One westbound lane of the highway is closed.
