HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Board of Water supply responded to two separate fire hydrant breaks that sent water shooting high into the air Tuesday.
Just after 5 p.m., BWS was notified about a geyser of water from a fire hydrant break on Ualena Street.
The Honolulu Fire Department was on scene working to shut off water. A BWS troubleshooter was en route to the break.
Earlier in the day, BWS crews responded to another report of a broken hydrant on Olomea Street.
The break was reported just after 10:20 a.m. It took crews about 20 minutes to shut off the water.
Both breaks are believed to have been cause by a vehicle striking the hydrants. Repairs to the hydrants are scheduled for a later time.
