The Honolulu Zoo is expected to reopen Thursday during normal hours as crews repair a two-inch galvanized pipe that ruptured Tuesday afternoon.
The break has been temporarily bypassed, said city spokesman Andrew Pereira.
The rupture to the pipe was discovered Tuesday at approximately 4:30 p.m. when the zoo closed, prompting the city to close the zoo today. Multiple leaks were observed in the pipe located on the edge of the stage lawn.
Crews turned off one of the main water lines, affecting public restrooms and concessions, according to Pereira.
The zoo still has access to water from a separate pipe connection toward the back of the zoo. Water tubs were provided to zoo animals Tuesday night.
