WATER CONSERVATION URGED IN KO OLINA

 

(Mon., Jan. 21, 2013) The City is asking all residents and businesses in the Ko Olina area to conserve water through this evening to facilitate repairs to a damaged pressurized sewer pipe, called a force main.

 

Water users are asked to not excessively use toilets, sinks, dishwashers, washing machines and showers.

 

A repair crew will be working into the evening to repair the force main at the West Beach No. 1 Wastewater Pump Station. The force main broke last night, and City crews are working using Vactor trucks and tankers to extract wastewater upstream of the break and redirect it downstream.
