Wasting water


An 8″ water main broke in Kawaihae and poured hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons of fresh water onto the street. The water made its way across the Kawaihae Harbor parking lot and spilled into the ocean next to the dock. I tried to send this cellphone photo to the newspaper for a heads-up but Verizon’s system didn’t want to work for some reason. When I came back a couple of hours later much of the area was already dried-up from the hot Kawaihae sun. You can see the hole in the foreground where the water forces sand and rubble out onto the street as it bored a hole.
