crews have finished repairs to an 8-inch waterline that connects the water
service to the water main at 711 Kapiolani Boulevard. Water service was
restored at approximately 4:45 p.m.

eastbound lanes on Kapiolani Boulevard between Dreier Street and Ward Avenue

unrelated to the BWS main repairs. Motorists are advised to drive with caution
and to use alternate routes where possible.
The far left westbound lane and far
left eastbound lane are open.
The BWS responds to each report
of possible water main breaks and leaks it receives and tries its best to
lessen disruption and mitigate the impact to our customers. The BWS also
looks at the efficiency of the entire water system to ensure that customers

The BWS is in the process of formulating a comprehensive, long
range water master plan that involves assessing existing facilities and
conducting an analysis to identify root causes of water main breaks.
Through this endeavor, the BWS will develop a plan for new and replacement
facilities now and into the future.
