Maui resorts not too upset about recent wastewater spills

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - Though wastewater has overflowed twice in two months at the entrance to one of Maui's major tourism centers, resort officials say they have no complaints with how the county handled the stinky situations.

The Maui News reports that a Kaanapali Operations Association official said the county did a great job addressing the sewer issues in West Maui.

The most recent spill saw some wastewater overflow from a sewer manhole along Honoapiilani Highway into the Kaanapali Golf Course's pond.

On June 25 about 25,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed near the entrance of the Kaanapali resort, which witnesses say caused some people in the area to feel ill from the stench. On July 27, another 5,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed in the same area.
