The Department of Water Supply will be working on Ka’ahumanu Avenue this morning on a water mainline that broke today fronting O’Reily’s Auto parts at the Maui Mall. Areas affected will be between Hana Highway and Puunene Ave. as well as between Kaahumanu Ave. and Kamehameha Ave. Water will be off for approximately five hours, expected to be back on full pressure around 2 p.m. today.
During this time traffic will be impacted. Motorists are advised to drive with caution in the area or use an alternate route. A lane will be closed on Kaahumanu Ave. going east toward Hana Highway. We ask that you set aside some water to get you through this time but conserve at the same time. We regret any inconvenience this will cause you.
Customers are asked to call the 24-hour service line (270-7633) only if a water problem occurs.
