11,025 gallons of sewage spill into Pearl Harbor

Advertiser Staff

About 11,025 gallons of sewage was discharged into a drainage canal that empties into Pearl Harbor from the main break that occurred along the mauka boundary of the Ted Makalena Golf course near the 14th hole, according to the state Department of Health Clean Water Branch.

The drainage canal empties into the Middle Lock of Pearl Harbor, which is not a public recreational water. Signs have been posted advising anyone to stay out of the water until further notice.
The sewage discharge occurred today, but repairs will begin tomorrow on the force main. Hawaiian Dredging and Construction will do the work.
