Raw sewage spilled from McCully Shopping Center

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled onto the streets from McCully Shopping Center Saturday at around 12:30 p.m.

The Department of Health says the ponded sewage along McCully, Kapiolani, Pumehana, and Line Street was sucked up and that the area has been disinfected. Disinfectant was also sprayed in areas where sewage was ponded, flowed into, and splashed on by motor vehicles. 

Crews inspected the area late Saturday and Sunday morning and found that no sewage entered into the Ala Wai Canal. Debris did enter into the secondary drain at Pumehana Street, but was absorbed by debris in secondary drain and storm drain box on opposite side of the road. 

Officials have lifted the sewage warning for the Ala Wai.

    When we asked Governor David Ige if he could beat Colleen Hanabusa in a potential match-up in 2018, he didn't hesitate with this response. "Certainly. I believe that I will be successful for any of those candidates that are considering it," he said. While Ige says he's sure he could win reelection in 2018, he says he doesn't know why powerful democratic forces are looking to defeat him with a candidate like Hanabusa in the primary election next August.
