Ask the mayor - Kauai mayor Bernard Carvalho

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kauai mayor Bernard Carvalho joined Sunrise for the "Ask the Mayor" segment this morning. He updated viewers on what efforts are being made to find an alternative site for the Kekaha Landfill.

In this el nino season, the north shores have been pounded with massive surf. Mayor Carvalho spoke about how he's trying to keep people safe on the shoreline by getting the message out to residents and tourists about the dangerous conditions.

He also addressed the possible water contamination in the Poipu-Koloa watershed. In a state study, there was evidence that there may have been some human fecal matter that was found in the water.

Plus, he updated viewers on the housing initiatives on Kauai and what's been done to help find shelter for the homeless.
