CITY CREWS CONTAIN MINOR SEWAGE SPILL

 

Crews from the Cty’s Environmental Services Department responded this morning to a minor sewage overflow from a manhole fronting the Honolulu Board of Water Supply at 550 South Beretania Street.

Approximately 26 hundred gallons spilled out from an eight-inch sewer main.  The line was clogged by heavy amounts of paper toweling, which itself does not break down in the sewer system.

Crews secured the spill and cleaned the scene.  The Department of Health was notified.  The city posted warning signs in the affected area.
