Warning signs removed after Ala Moana wastewater spill

The state is removing the warning signs installed after the wastewater discharge on Ala Moana Boulevard.

On Monday, August 24, 2015, the area between Point Panic at Kakaako Waterfront Park to Kapahulu Groin in Waikiki was closed because of a sewage spill along Ala Moana Boulevard that was estimated to be 500,000 gallons.

The state Department of Health Clean Water Branch (CWB) says that the signs are being removed and they are ceasing water quality sampling due to the results of their latest sampling data.

CWB reminds the public that there is a statewide Brown Water Advisory due to the effects of intermittent heavy rains.

“The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer, manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris. Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff. However, if the water is brown stay out. Continue to practice good personal hygiene and shower after recreating in any waters.”
