BROKEN VALVE CAUSES WASTEWATER SPILL AT AHUIMANU

 

(Wed., Jan. 18, 2012) A broken valve along the Ahuimanu Force Main caused an estimated 5,000 gallon wastewater spill this morning.

 

         The spill started at 5:55 a.m. and was contained at 6:45 a.m.  The raw wastewater spilled onto ground along a stretch of Kahekili Highway near Hui Iwa Street.
