Kaanapali Parkway soiled by sewage
Approximately 275 gallons of wastewater overflowed from a Kaanapali Parkway manhole on Monday morning, the county Department of Environmental Management announced Tuesday.
The spill was reported at 7:20 a.m. Monday and stopped an hour and five minutes later, officials said. The overflow was attributed to a blockage of grease in a main sewer line.
Less than half of the spill, 120 gallons, made its way into a storm drain, the department said. Spilled wastewater was pumped up. The spill site was cleaned and disinfected. Warning signs were posted, and water samples were taken to determine if wastewater reached a waterway.
The state Department of Health was notified.
