Ko Olina pipeline causes another sewage spill

A sewage spill involving the same Ko Olina force main line that broke in November was reported to city officials this morning.

The leak has been contained and a repair crew is on the way, city Environmental Services Director Lori Kahikina told reporters about 11 a.m. The spill was reported to city officials around 8 a.m. but it’s unclear when it began, she said.

The spill is not affecting the nearby Ko Olina Golf Course and is not threatening any waterways, Kahikina said. The immediate area was cordoned off.

The amount of untreated effluent spilled is also unknown, but is greater than 1,000 gallons, she said.

The November incident resulted in approximately 200,000 gallons being spilled onto about 1.5 acres of vacant land and did not affect the golf course or nearby waterways.
