Department of Health lifts sewage warning signs for Ala Wai Canal

Anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 gallons of sewage overflowed from the McCully Shopping Center on Saturday.

The Department of Health says that ponded sewage along McCully, Kapiolani, Pumehana, and Line Street was sucked up and disinfected.

Disinfectant was sprayed in areas where sewage was ponded, flowed into, and splashed on by motor vehicles.

On Saturday evening and Sunday morning, crews inspected the Ala Wai Canal from McCully Street, west and up the Makiki Stream Canal and found that no sewage entered the Ala Wai Canal.

What did enter into the secondary drain at Pumehana Street was absorbed by debris in the secondary drain and storm drain box on the opposite side of the road.

The sewage warning has been lifted for the Ala Wai Canal.
