Water main break left Kahala Hotel without water

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:42 p.m. HST, Jun 27, 2013

Both the posh Kahala Hotel and Resort and the Waialae Country Club were without water service for several hours following a water main break early this morning on Kahala Avenue.

Water service was restored at about 9:45 a.m., the hotel said. Three other customers in the area, including Waialae Beach Park, were also affected.

Board of Water Supply officials said the break occurred near the intersection of Kealaolu Street and Kahala Avenue, near Waialae Beach Park, at 5:35 a.m. 

The break closed Kahala Avenue from Kealaolu Street to the Kahala Hotel. One lane of Kealaolu Avenue was being used to contraflow traffic and police officers are helping to direct traffic. Motorists are advised to drive with caution in the area.

Hotel guests are able to leave the resort through the Waialae Golf Course, while repairs continue on the main.

The main was originally installed in 1952.

The Kahala Hotel has 338 guest rooms, restaurants and banquet facilities.

Ben was right: fix your bad sewers, water and roads and bridges before overpaying for an outdated rail.

Everyday, someone on this island is without running water. Right now, tourists who are staying in one of the state's premier hotels can't shower, eat or use the restroom. Its like we're a remote third-world country without modern plumbing. Yet, we still try to fool ourselves into thinking that we're a global city.

Here's a thought. Why not start a pool on when the next water main break will occur? I pick tomorrow.

Once a week there seems to be another water main break. Skip the rail which we and our grandchildren will never be able to afford and take care of the infrastructure of our city. More water users will appreciate it. Can we count how many rail users we will have?

They are just like HECO, no such thing as preventive maintenance--only break down repair. So sad, we are like a third world country.
