Waipahu water main break shut down housing subdivision access
Sixty homes were without water in the Waipahu area on Sunday, according to the Board of Water Suply.
Crews were dispatched to work on a 12-inch water main break. The pipe was originally installed in 1971.
The water main break happened just after 6 a.m. Sunday morning near Waipahu and Hianakiu Streets.
Police closed lanes in both directions at the intersection. A water wagon was stationed near the intersection for affected homes to get water.
Water service was restored by 4 p.m. The road was reopened by 12:45 a.m. Monday.
