Board of Water Supply crews are responding to an 8-inch water main break at 3113 Woodlawn Drive in Manoa area on Wednesday.
The main break has forced the closure of Woodlawn Drive in both directions between Kahaloa Drive and Lower Road. Motorists are advised to avoid the area and use East Manoa Road as an alternate route to enter or exit Manoa Valley.
Approximately 30 customers were without water service. Seven are expected to remain without water into Wednesday evening. A water wagon will be positioned near the break site as an alternate water source.
A repair crew will soon begin excavation work to determine the extent of the repair. This water main was originally installed in 1935 and is scheduled to be replaced as part of the BWS's ongoing Woodlawn Drive 8-inch Main Water System Improvement Project.
