Water main break shuts court, school

By Star-Advertiser staff


Windward Oahu residents from Kahaluu to Maunawili were asked to use water sparingly Tuesday night as Honolulu Board of Water Supply workers continued repairs on a water main break near Long Bridge in Heeia.

Crews began work at about 4 a.m. Tuesday to repair the 16-inch main break that prompted Windward Community College, Kaneohe District Court and Pali Golf Course to close for the day. An unspecified number of Windward residential customers lost water service.

An unknown number of customers at higher elevations continued to be without water Tuesday afternoon, agency spokesman Kurt Tsue said.

Windward Oahu residents from Kahaluu to Maunawili were asked to use water only for essential needs such as cooking, drinking and personal hygiene. Customers could call the agency to request a water wagon in their neighborhood.

Windward Community College canceled classes and activities for the day.

The state Judiciary said court hearings scheduled for Tuesday were completed before the courthouse was closed at about 11:30 a.m.

Because of the early closure, the Hawaii Supreme Court will issue an order extending, by one day, any Kaneohe District Court matter with a filing or hearing due date of June 14.

Court officials anticipate the courthouse will be open today.

People may make payment on traffic citations at any district court or at www.courts.state.hi.us. For more information, call 538-5767 for civil cases or 538-5500 for traffic cases.

At Pali Golf Course, golfers on the course were allowed to complete their rounds, the city said. Water coolers were placed on the course.
