Water service has been restored for parts of the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa after a water main break near Dean Hall shut down service to Campus Center and the Warrior Recreation Center. 

The water main break happened at around 9 a.m., and caused a loss of water pressure in several buildings. Food establishments within Campus Center such as Starbucks were closed for the day. Campus Center Food Court was closed at 1 p.m.

Board of Water Supply workers managed to stop the water at the break and have excavated down to the pipe. As of May 18, water has been restored.
