Water main break knocks out service to Pearl City customers

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Approximately 20 homes in Pearl City were without water early Tuesday morning because of a water main break on Hooheno Street.

Honolulu Board of Water Supply crews were scheduled to arrive at the scene by 4:30 a.m. to begin repairs to the break, which occurred at around 1:15 a.m.

Hawaii News Now crews at the scene were told by a Board of Water Supply employee that most houses had some water service but with very low pressure, since there was a concern that completely turning off the water would cause a sinkhole.

We will have more on this developing story all morning on Sunrise.
