Some Kaunakakai businesses and a portion of the highway was temporarily closed last Friday when a County water main broke along Kamehameha V Highway in town shortly before 2 p.m. Water shooting high in the air could be seen all the way from Ranch Camp.

Water in Kaunakakai had to be shut down for several hours while the Dept. of Water Supply completed repairs. Traffic was rerouted around the break between Mohala Street and Ailoa Street. A resident of Manila Camp reported water service was restored to that area around 6:30 p.m.
