Ko Olina residents asked to conserve water while sewer main is fixed

By Star-Advertiser staff & Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:29 p.m. HST, Jan 21, 2013

Residents and businesses in Ko Olina are being asked to conserve water use as the city repairs a damaged pressurized sewer pipe, also called a force main.

Water users are asked to not excessively use toilets, sinks, dishwashers, washing machines and showers.

The city says residents are asked to conserve water through this evening. 

A crew is working to repair the pipe at the West Beach No. 1 Wastewater Pump Station by extracting wastewater upstream and redirecting it downstream.

About 1,500 gallons of untreated wastewater was released Sunday afternoon when the 16-inch force main broke in the Ko Olina area.

City crews contained the spill and contacted agencies, including the state Health Department, to repair the break.

You imply that the west side is somehow deficient or substandard? You've got to resist the urge to continually comment on things you know nothing about, and offending locals with your dingy comments. You seem to suffer from a lack of common sense, hard to believe you're a college student. You should consider returning to where ever it is you come from.
