~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> We were anchored at the Kaneohe sandbar and saw feces floating in the water. Who can I report this to? I have noticed more tour boats at the sandbar. Are they inspected to make sure they are using holding tanks? There were only two other private boats besides ours. It was pretty disgusting to see poop floating by not once, but six times.</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> State officials say what you likely saw was turtle poop, something that&rsquo;s just part of nature and not a health concern.</p>
