SEWAGE SPILL IN PALOLO  

 

Crews from the Environmental Services Department responded to a sewage spill this morning in Palolo after a clogged pipe backed up.

The call came in at 8:14 a.m. with the crew arriving on the scene at 9:03 a.m. The crew secured the site one hour and 23 minutes later.

The spill happened at 2201 Ahe Place when a 12-inch PCV pipe became clogged with roots and rags causing 2,640 gallons of sewage to spill out and run off into Palolo stream.

The crew cleaned and deodorized the affected area. The Department of Health has been notified and signs have been placed in the area to notify the public. The Environmental Quality division is currently taking water samples from the stream.
