Waste water discharge reported in 2 areas on Oahu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Department of Health's Clean Water Branch says two areas on Oahu were affected by waste water discharge.

An overflow from a clean-out on Kapiolani Boulevard caused 75 gallons of waste water discharge to enter a canal leading to the Ala Wai Canal.

According to the DOH, warning signs will be posted in the area.

The public is advised to stay out of the Ala Wai Canal from the McCully Street bridge to the Ala Moana bridge for the next two days.

A grease buildup in a six-inch line on Waikahululu Lane resulted in a 350 gallon sewer manhole overflow.

According to the DOH, discharge entered a storm drain which leads into Nuuanu Stream, just mauka of Foster Botanical Garden.

The public is advised to stay out of the Nuuanu Stream from School Street to Honolulu Harbor.

Warning signs will be posted in the area and water samples will be collected.
