KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Board of Water Supply (BWS) crews have completed repairs to a 12-inch main on Keolu Drive between Akanahe Place and Akeke Place in the Enchanted Lakes area of Kailua.

Water service has been restored to the affected customers at approximately 2 p.m.

The main repairs did not result in the closure of vehicular traffic lanes in the area.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances the bike lane on the mauka side of Keolu Drive between Akanahe Place and Akeke Place will be re-opened in 2-3 hours.  The 12-inch main was installed in 1971.

The BWS says it 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.
