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.
