Check website for warnings about polluted isle beaches

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Apr 28, 2014

~~<p><strong>QUESTION:</strong> As a follow-up to whether it is safe to swim in or eat fish from the Ala Wai Canal in the April 9 Kokua Line (<a href="http://is.gd/AVN3Mv">is.gd/AVN3Mv</a>): Because Waikiki and Ala Moana are so close to the Ala Wai, I'm sure pollution gets pushed to both beaches. I'm also sure both beaches are monitored, but is that information public?</p>
<p><strong>ANSWER:</strong> The information is posted on the website of the state Department of Health's Clean Water Branch, which monitors beaches statewide. (See <a href="http://is.gd/NZELuV">is.gd/NZELuV</a>.)</p>
