Star-Bulletin staff


A 16-inch pipeline, fire hydrants and related items will go in along Auloa Road from Castle Junction 1,600 feet west of Lunaai Street in Maunawili, part of $8.45 million worth of Oahu improvements, the Board of Water Supply said.

"We are replacing pipelines with a high frequency of breakage and, at the same time, improving fire protection to residents in these neighborhoods," said Manager and Chief Engineer Clifford Jamile. "We are also constructing a well to monitor the condition of the freshwater lens and improving our corporation yard in Pearl City to meet current and future demands for emergency repair and maintenance work for Leeward and Central Oahu."

Delta Construction Corp. won the $849,705 contract for the Maunawili work, now under way and expected to be completed in September 2001.

At Pearl City, Quality General Inc., under a $6,702,317 contract, will construct a new office building and renovate existing structures at the Manana Corporation Yard. Work has started and should be completed by the end of January 2002.

In Kahaluu, Preferred Constructors Inc. was awarded a $595,825 contract to install 8- and 4-inch water lines and related equipment along Kamehameha Highway from Lihikai to Laenani drives and the entire lengths of Lihikai and Laenani drives. Eleven fire hydrants along Mapele Place and Ahilama, Mapele, Ahuimanu and Pulama roads are part of the overall project. The work is ongoing and expected to be done in May 2001.

Beylik Drilling Inc. has a $310,000 contract for work in the Waikele vicinity, to drill and case a deep monitor well in Poliwai Gulch. The job starts this month and likely will take until the first of next year to complete.
