Raw sewage from McCully Shopping Center might have reached Ala Wai Canal


Up to 5,000 gallons of sewage overflowed from two clean-out pipes at the McCully Shopping Center Saturday.

A private contractor cleared the blockage that caused the overflows but Department of Health officials say some of the sewage might have reached the Ala Wai Canal.

DOH has posted warning signs in the area and is advising the public to stay out of the canal from Ala Wai Elementary to the Ala Moana Bridge.
