Crews are repairing a broken water sewer main that spilled more than 5,000 gallons of wastewater at the Aliamanu Military Reservation.
The spill happened around 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Aliamanu Drive and Rim Loop.
A construction worker reportedly drilled into the pipe by accident, causing the spill.
The 1,400 residents in the area are now under an emergency water restriction until repairs are complete.
