The replacement cost to a broken water main that supplies most of the water to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam are expected to be costly.

According to Congressman Ed Case’s office, the full replacement cost to repair the main is estimated at $78 million.
     
Case visited the repair site yesterday and says the 65-year-old main which broke last week services about 92,000 people on base and in surrounding military communities.
     
Water conservation measures remain in place and people should use water for essential needs only.
