As of 2 a.m. Monday, all roads reopened.


According to the Board of Water Supply (BWS), crews are slowly returning water service to the 210 customers affected by Sunday afternoon’s water main break.

As of 10 p.m., BWS says service will be completely restored in about an hour as workers complete their repairs, and the road will remain closed during this process.

Board of Water Supply work crews have responded to an 8-inch water main break on Mariposa Drive on Wilhelmina Rise in Honolulu, leaving 210 customers without service.

It was first reported at 2 p.m. Sunday.

BWS says the main was first installed in 1941.

Mariposa Drive has been closed to traffic to allow crews to repair the water line and restore water service.

Two roving water wagons are on scene providing an alternate water source for customers affected. The Board of Water Supply says one wagon is roving Mariposa Drive to Paloma Place, and the other, will maneuver Paula Drive.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution when traveling near the area and to use alternate routes where possible.
