Sewage pipe break closes beaches on Maui

LAHAINA, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

Beaches in Lahaina were closed as a precaution on Wednesday after a sewage pipe broke nearby, according to Maui County officials.

Authorities do not believed any sewage reached the ocean, buy all Lahaina beaches, from Mala Wharf to Canoe Beach, were closed as a result of the break.

The spill is believed to have happened when a contractor accidentally ruptured a 20-inch pipe. Crews have since made temporary repairs and contained the spill.
