LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Workers installing on Kauai utility lines have uncovered human remains at the Kauai Sands Hotel in Waipouli.

Kauai County spokeswoman Sarah Blane tells The Garden Island that police were notified but the findings are being handled by the state archaeologist.

Department of Land and Natural Resources spokeswoman Deborah Ward says the State Historic Preservation Division is awaiting inadvertent burial discovery form reports.

A Honolulu-based archaeological services company, Scientific Consultant Services, is preparing reports on five sets of bones disturbed during trenching.
