    WAIPAHU, Hawaii (KITV) — City and County officials said a clog of rags and grease sent untreated wastewater out of a manhole in Waipahu on Tuesday.

The Department of Environmental Services (ENV) responded to a call at 94-550 Kupuohi St.

An estimated 1,050 gallons spilled out with 10 gallons entering a nearby storm drain.

Crews were able to recover 100 gallons with an additional 940 dissipating into the ground.

Officials said ENV notified the state Department of Health who waived posting warning signs and taking water samples. Crews cleaned, disinfected and deodorized the area.
