Close To 2 Million Gallons of Wastewater Spilt Into Pearl Harbor

(KHNL) - The U.S. Navy reports close to two million gallons of wastewater spilt into Pearl Harbor.

Officials say the incident happened around 8 a.m., on Sunday.

Heavy rain is being blamed for a power surge that temporarily shut down the wastewater collection system's main lift station.

As a result, two manhole covers displaced and overflowed an estimated 1.97 million gallons of sewage into nearby storm drains at Pearl Harbor and at the intersection of South Avenue and Lake Erie.

At this time, the U.S. Navy expects little effects on the environment.
