Detail: CWB has been notified of a 5000 gallon partially treated waste water discharge at the Sand Island WWTP. Heavy rains and flows surcharged a manhole connected to a primary clarifier odor control system sending 5,000 gallons of partially treated wastewater into a storm drain, which drains into Honolulu Harbor. Warning signs will be posted at first light tomorrow. The public is advised to stay out of waters adjacent to the two Keehi Lagoon Boat ramps and Mokauea Island. Commercial dive operations around the Kapalama Basin of Honolulu Harbor should be postphoned for a few days.
