Crews fixing sinkholes on Kauai

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:01 a.m. HST, Mar 11, 2012

A water main break appears to be the cause of two sinkholes discovered in the Ulu Mahi subdivision of Lihue Saturday.

Kauai County road crews closed Pua Nani Street, makai of Aheahea Street because of road damage. Department of Water crews shut off water service to the area until repairs can be completed.  

There was no estimate Saturday of when the repairs will be completed.

Lookie-loos are in danger without realizing their plight. Aging infra-structure cause sink holes, and reserves have not been provided for so, taxes will rise to off-set the cost of repairs. Our retirement community has built up huge reserve for contingencies for our aging community. This will aid in keeping our maintenance fees from rising exorbitantly. Governments are short-sighted and have very little or no reserve for emergencies.
