Board of Water Supply (BWS) crews continue to work on a 12-inch main break in Lanikai on Kawailoa Road near Popoia Road that happened on Thursday.

The break was first reported at about 12:35 p.m.

As of 10 p.m. Thursday, BWS crews continue repair work on the broken water main and say the work is expected to continue into the morning. Most customers now have water, but water pressure may be low, BWS said. 

There will be brief lane closures on the bridge to allow for movement of repair equipment, but traffic overall is not expected to be affected by the repairs. 

BWS crews are asking Lanikai residents to use water sparingly and for priority needs overnight and into Friday morning.
