FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GREASE AND DEBRIS CAUSE SEWAGE TO OVERLOW FROM
About 2050 gallons of sewage spilled out of a manhole at 1260 Richard Lane and into Kalihi Stream between 4:45 and 6:15 p.m. this evening before City crews stopped it. The overflow was caused by a blockage of grease and other debris in a sewer line.
The State Department of Health has been notified, and the area has been disinfected and deodorized. Warning signs have been posted and sampling for contamination is underway.
