                             ENV RESPONDS TO MANOA ROAD SSO


(Thursday, Sept. 9, 2010) – The city’s Department of Environmental Services responded this evening to a sanitary sewer overflow on Manoa Road.

The call came in at 6:15 p.m.  An ENV crew arrived at the scene at 7:05 p.m. and secured the site at 8:20 p.m.

Roots clogged a 6-inch terra cotta pipe.  An estimated 5,000 gallons of untreated wastewater came out of manhole at 1944 Manoa Road.  Approximately 4,600 made its way into a storm drain that eventually leads to the Ala Wai Canal, while 400 gallons dissipated into the ground.

ENV notified the state Department of Health.  Signing and water sampling will begin at first light on Friday morning.
