WASTEWATER WARNING SIGNS POSTED IN KANEOHE

 

Crews from the city’s Department of Environmental Services posted warning signs and began sampling today at both Kawa Stream and Kaneohe Bay after a wastewater overflow yesterday from the Kaneohe Pretreatment Facility.

A total of 37,500 gallons of untreated wastewater entered Kawa Stream via surface run-off, which empties into Kaneohe Bay.

Parts of Oahu received up to 14 inches of rain in a 12-hour span yesterday, surcharging collection systems from Kailua to Waianae.

The City notified the state Department of Health of the overflows.  Warning signs are posted and sampling begun.
