ENV RESPONDS TO FORCE MAIN BREAK IN KO OLINA

 

(Fri., April 5, 2013) – The City’s Department of Environmental Services responded late last night to a force main break in the Ko Olina area.

 

         The call came in at 9:10 p.m., and stopped at 11:30 p.m.  The volume is estimated well over 1,000 gallons of raw, untreated wastewater, which entered a storm drain that empties near Ko Olina resort.

 

         The 16-inch force main break is located at the City’s West Beach No. 1 Wastewater Pump Station at 2750 Aliinui Drive. Crews have contained the spill and contacted agencies to repair the break.

 

         ENV notified the state Department of Health.  Warning signs will be posted and water sampling conducted at daybreak.
