KO OLINA (KHNL) -- A water main broke on Farrington Highway near Ko Olina earlier Tuesday morning.
The break is located about 40 feet town-side of the highway overpass by Ko Olina. BWS crews are still excavating the 24-inch main. The pipe is buried at least 6 feet deep and because of its depth, BWS must install shoring to ensure trench safety.
The BWS is asking all Leeward Coast residents, from Nanakuli to Waianae, to use water sparingly and for priority needs until the main is repaired.
The BWS says water should be used for cooking and drinking, and personal hygiene only. Residents should refrain from laundry, watering lawns and gardens, or washing cars at this time.
The contra flowed lane was returned to its normal, Waianae-bound direction. There are now two Waianae-bound lanes and one town-bound lane open for Leeward Coast traffic.
