County offices at One Main include the Solid Waste Division, Office of Economic Development, Water Resources & Planning Division, Planning Department, IT Services Division, Zoning Administration & Enforcement, Housing & Human Concerns, Wastewater Division and Immigration Services.
Due to a break along a six inch waterline on Central Avenue, a number of Wailuku customers have been without water on Central Avenue, Ilina Street, Kaniela Street as well as parts of Vineyard and Market streets. Other customers have water but will experience low pressure today.
Department of Water Supply Personnel have been on scene repairing the leak since early this morning and as of 10 a.m. it is estimated that it would take up to six hours to repair the break.
Customers in Wailuku are asked to conserve water in the meantime.
