Crews Work to Repair Broken Waterline on Kaahumanu Ave

Crews are working this morning (Friday, October 30, 2009) to repair a 12″ broken water line on Kaahumanu Avenue fronting the Checkers Auto Store in Kahului.

The break resulted in the closure of 2 of 3 lanes on Kaahumanu Avenue and affected water service to a portion of the Maui Mall.  Mall officials say part of the mall is on a different waterline and those businesses are not affected.

Vehicle traffic through the area is impacted while County crews work to complete repairs.

Offices and services located at Kahului Harbor will have low water pressure until repairs are completed.


The Department of Water Supply estimates that water service will be restored around noon when repairs are projected to be complete.
