HONOLULU (KHON2) — The City and County of Honolulu Department of Environmental Services (ENV) are asking Ewa Beach residents to conserve water.

The urgency to conserve water is due to a force main break that happened yesterday at the Ewa Beach Wastewater Pump Station at Makule Road.

ENV trucks are also collecting the wastewater at manholes and pump stations for redistribution downstream.

Residents are asked to only use their water for essential tasks, very minimally.
