Hawaii Main Break
Oct 22, 2004

Burst Main limits access to Hale'iwa
Both lanes of Kamehameha Highway leading into Hale'iwa from the Waimea side of the North Shore were closed yesterday as crews scrambled to repair a blown 16-inch water main near Ali'i Beach Park. Anyone making it past Bascar yesterday would have encountered a 16- by 32-foot hole in the pavement that was 8 feet deep. Until the work is completed, the road will remain closed and residents will be asked to limit water use to drinking, cooking and sanitation.
