High Levels of Bacteria Found in Nuuanu Stream

NUUANU (KHNL) -- A warning for you. State health officials say tests on the water in Nuuanu Stream show very high levels of bacteria.

Heavy rains are being blamed for the release of more than 2,000 gallons of wastewater off Pali Highway Wednesday night. About 700 gallons of that sewage wound up in Nuuanu Stream.

Health officials say they'll continue to test the water through the weekend. For now, they urge people to stay out of the stream.
