Water main break in Kailua affects 19 customers

KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Nearly 20 customers in Kailua are without water due to a water main break on Kainui Drive, according to the Board of Water Supply.

BWS said the break, located at 911 Kainui Drive, was first reported at 4:50 a.m. The size of the water main and extent of the repair is not known at this time.

A water wagon will be available for affected customers.

Lanes of Kainui Drive are temporarily open, but the mauka-bound lane -- between Maluniu Avenue and Oneawa Street -- will be closed when the repair crew arrives and starts excavation work. Drivers are asked to take alternate routes.

Kainalu Elementary School, which is located near the water main break, said it has not been affected so far.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
