Residents want answers about illegal dumping in Nanakuli canal

Local News

Nanakuli residents want answers.

Folks who live along Mohihi Street say they’ve been plagued by a foul odor.

They say it’s coming from a nearby canal that’s being used as an illegal dump site.

“When the water drained out of the stream then they kinda resurfaced. They said there was a toilet, a raft. But then they said it wasn’t that. They think there’s either sludge or dead animals in there because they said it’s never smelt like that before,” said Rep. Andria Tupola.

Representative Tupola says she’s been in contact with the city and state health department to clean out the canal, and to determine if there are hazardous materials there.
