The two hydrants are located at the intersection of Lauloa and Hoalike streets, and at the intersection of Lauloa and Halekai streets.Water tanks are also positioned at Kenolio Road adjacent to Kihei Villages, and at Kaiwahine Street near the highway intersection.
A waterline break is also affecting Haiku residents near the Five Corners intersection. Water customers affected include those below Five Corners on Peahi, Kaupakalua and Ulumalu Roads. Repairs there are
ongoing; customers may experience low water pressure or a service interruption.Traffic at the site of the Five Corners leak is impacted, and motorists are asked to avoid the area if at all possible.
Water crews are working on both the South Maui and Haiku waterlines simultaneously, and will continue working on the repairs continuously.
At this time there is no estimate on the time of completion for the repairs in both areas; customers are asked to anticipate low water pressure or possible outtages until at least tomorrow. All water users in South Maui and Haiku are asked to conserve water and to avoid unecessary water usage. Updates will be provided as they are available.Due to the extremely high volume of calls to the Dept. of Water Supply hotline, only customers needing immediate assistance are asked to call Maui County Communications Director Rod Antone at (808) 446-6960.
