ENV Responds to Sewer Overflow in Wahiawa


HONOLULU The City's Department of Environmental Services responded this afternoon to a sanitary sewer overflow in Wahiawa.


ENV received the call at 1:34 p.m., arrived at the site at 3:03 p.m. and released the blockage at 3:35 p.m.


Debris clogged a 6-inch siphon sewer pipe at 77 Karsten Drive in Wahiawa sending 3,720 gallons of untreated wastewater out a manhole and over the side of a cliff and into a steep ravine.


ENV crews cleaned, disinfected and deodorized the area around the manhole.  The state Department of Health was notified and waived signing.
