Call police on water thieves, city and state officials urge

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 14, 2012

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> On Friday, July 27, between 3 and 3:30 p.m. on the bridge at Woodlawn Drive in Manoa, a large tanker truck with a powerful siphon was seen taking water out of Manoa Stream. The truck had no markings, which is why it was noticed. It was a flatbed truck with a large heavy-duty plastic tub and a pump like those used to empty swimming pools. Who was doing this? Is it allowed or legal? If not, should it have been reported to authorities?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> Neither state nor city officials we contacted knew who was taking the water or why.</p>
