Board of Water Supply crews responded to a break to an 12-inch main on Keolu Drive in Kailua between Akanahe Place and Akeke Place Wednesday morning.
The break was reported at around 5:15 a.m. Approximately 26 homes were affected by this main repair.
Water service was restored to affected customers by 2 p.m.
The 12-inch main was installed in 1971.
The BWS responds to each report of possible water main breaks and leaks it receives and tries its best to lessen disruption and mitigate the impact to our customers. The BWS also looks at the efficiency of the entire water system to ensure that customers continue to receive a safe and dependable water supply at an affordable cost. The BWS is in the process of formulating a comprehensive, long range water master plan that involves assessing existing facilities and conducting an analysis to identify root causes of water main breaks. Through this endeavor, the BWS will develop a plan for new and replacement facilities now and into the future.
