Some Upcountry Maui residents affected by damaged water line
Maui County officials say some Upcountry Maui residents are being affected by a damaged water line Friday.
The potable water tanker is located on Kokomo Road at a vacant lot between Hoolea and Puuomalei Roads.
Crews are working on a temporary bypass to restore water service to customers until the 12-inch line can be replaced.

The following areas are affected by the damaged water line:
- Kailiili Road - no water

- Hoolea Place - very low pressure
- Puuomalei Road - very low pressure
- Upper section of Kaupakalua Road - very low pressure
