Upcountry water main break fixed

A water main break that disrupted water service in parts of Makawao and Pukalani on Tuesday afternoon was repaired later in the evening, the county Department of Water Supply said.

There was no water service from the Makawao Avenue-Makani Road intersection to Pukalani Superette due to the broken main, the department said at about 5:45 p.m.

Repairs were underway Tuesday evening and the work was completed at about 8:15 p.m., said county spokesman Brian Perry.

There could be air or sediment in the line and customers were urged to run the water until clear.
