CITY REPAIRING BROKEN WASTEWATER PIPE IN KANEOHE
Crews from the City Environmental Services Department are working to repair a rupture in a sewer main fronting 45-007 Ka Hanahou Place.
The break was discovered by a City crew about 8:30 a.m. in an 8-inch force main (a pipe that moves wastewater under pressure). An estimated 3,150 gallons of wastewater entered nearby Kaneohe Bay before workers contained the spill. Tanker trucks are being used to divert and haul wastewater from the area under repair.
Warning signs have been posted and water samples are being collected. The public is advised to heed the warning signs and stay away from affected areas. The state Health Department has been notified.
