  • ROB SHIKINA / RSHIKINA@STARADVERTISER.COM

    Honolulu Board of Water Supply worked to repair an 8-inch water main break on Makaloa Street that left Kapiolani Manor, the Pan Am building, and the Pawaa fire station without water.

Board of Water Supply crews restored water service this afternoon to customers who were affected by a water main break on Makaloa Street.

The broken 8-inch main was reported at about 6:30 a.m. and occurred beneath Makaloa Street between Kaheka and Poni streets, the Board of Water Supply said. Service was restored at 3:30 p.m. Crews restored the roadway at 7 p.m.

Three properties lost water because of the break — the Pan Am Building, Kapiolani Manor, and the Pawaa fire station, the utility said. One of the properties, Kapiolani Manor, is a residential high-rise with 516 units.

The Board of Water Supply said it provided a water wagon in the parking lot next to Kapiolani Manor for affected customers and attached a water spigot to a hydrant on Kaheka Street next to the fire station.
