Some 5,000 gallons of sewage overflowed from a manhole in Kaanapali on Monday, Maui County officials said in a news release. The overflow was caused by a failure at the Lahaina Pump Station No. 2 on North Honoapiilani Highway, officials said. The sewage spill occurred from 11:30 to 11:45 a.m. The sewage flowed from the sewer manhole into a storm drain and discharged into the Kaanapali Golf Course Pond, officials said. The area was cleaned and disinfected, and warning signs were posted. Tests are being conducted to determine whether the spill reached the ocean, the county said.

Another 16-year-old girl, also ejected from the rear seat, suffered minor injuries. The 18-year-old driver and a 17-year-old girl in the rear seat were also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Panaewa project planned HILO >> The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is proposing a new subdivision that would make 80 agriculture lots in Panaewa available to beneficiaries. The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported Monday that a draft environmental assessment for the project says Makuu Farm Lots residents forced to leave due to lava could move to the half-acre lots. The July 9 report did not explain how the absence of a lava threat from the June 27 flow would affect the plan and the ability for Makuu residents to relocate. The project would divide five 10-acre parcels into 80 lots on Auwae Road east of Prince Kuhio Plaza and Mahiai Street.
