HEAVY RAINS CAUSE TREATMENT PLANT OVERFLOWS
Crews from the city's Department of Environmental Services responded this morning to two wastewater treatment plant overflows, one at the Wahiawa Wastewater Treatment Plant and one at the Sand Island Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Approximately 10,000 gallons overflowed from a drain line at the Sand Island headworks facility, an estimated 5,000 gallons dissipated into the plant grounds and the remainder entered a storm drain that leads to Honolulu Harbor.
The City notified the state Department of Health of both overflows. The City posted warning signs and sampling is ongoing.
