That's a good possibility. A broken water main.

Silt and coral. That serious huh!

The last time we saw one of these.... well, you don't really wanna know.

No really, you don't want to know. It was so boring they had to call in actual geologists to study it because everyone else lost interest.

LIQUEFACTION effect
Kind of looks like the liquefaction effect in japan. notice how murky the water looks in the first 30 seconds of this video from Japan. This as well is coming out of this storm drain in Japan. Kind of looks the same to me. ( same murky look.)

They have found the source . it was a 8" water main that broke under ground. Hawaii is Saved by a maintenance crew hooray!

UPDATE: Crews discover source of mystery plume


At 1 p.m., repair crews made their way to the eight-inch main. Word of the discovery made its way through the busy harbor.


and they have a video of the crew tearing up the street.

UPDATE: Crews discover source of mystery plume


A three-day mystery has apparently been solved but not before six million gallons of fresh water mixed with a white substance had emptied into Kewalo Basin. City and state engineers and state health officials had been baffled by a mystery plume.

Three days of Mystery Bafflement by a white substance...


Mystery finally solved," said Barclay. "It's not sewage that's coming into the harbor, so the water is not as contaminated as it could be, there's still quite a bit of particulate matter."

Mystery particulate matter still a mystery?


Harbor users say it's hard to believe six million gallons of water had emptied into the harbor without water meters going ballistic.

Hard to believe the alarms were turned off for the mystery dump. Naw... Dammit, how did the press get wind anyway?


So unfortunately when we have such a large system it's very hard to indicate, pin-point where certain sources are leaking...

Hold on there officialdom, only one outlet in your vast system is spewing here. Now tell us true, where does the pin "point" to?


Late this afternoon, Board of Water Supply repair crews hit a snag while trying to reach the leaking pipe.

Yah, the snag of preventing disclosure.


...work came to a standstill. Work is expected to continue into the night.

You mean the coverup work? This is a toxic dump gone bad. The company (whomever they are) wasn't supposed to dump that much all at once but aw shucks, what the hell... they done it before. Did anyone else see the milky chalk look to the waterline on the harbor docks in the video? Coral and silt indeed. That doesn't kill fish or require "contaminated water" signs be hurriedly placed around. They know exactly what it is, just squirming they got caught. Work was halted until after dark to put off any snoopy peeps. Lying thru their teeth. The only way anyone is going to find out what the stuff is is take a sample and test it independently. Away from the harbor master, all those officials, the guys "digging" and the press. Good luck.


"Until we stop seeing particulate matter coming into the harbor, those signs stay up," said Barclay. "It's best to stay out of the water."

Yah, even though its only mystery coral flour we think, best to shower when you get home. And don't eat any fish that have chalky gills either.

Well, if we start seeing the beach police show up like in the gulf. then we know it's foul play of some kind.

Nice pile of out of context quotes there.
Toxic waste dump in the middle of Honolulu? Really?

A broken water main. Honolulu's water system is falling apart. So is its wastewater system. But they smell different.
From August, 2011.

Broken white water main? And sewer effluence is brown, not?

Oil mostly floats and is brought ashore by wind and tide.
This stuff appears to be soluble so will disperse more readily.
Do you live near there?

Kinda looks like slurry...The slurry that the big tunnel machines use/discharge..


Just a thought.

Carry on.

But I'll bet a buffalo nickel that someone would pop out from a corner and tell me I couldn't do that, judging by the way the harbormaster was acting towards me.

Yah, be careful. But do collect a gallon or two if you can from above the outlet so as to get fresh water instead of seawater mix. Go early AM while still dark. No one will be watching then. Look for cameras though. If you can follow the outlet to a source away from the docks then the better.

Separate samples into several parts. Pour some into a clear jar with lid and let settle to see if stuff sediments at bottom or rises to the top. It looks soluble in the vid. Shake it up and shine a bright light thru it to see particle size and wether organic or not. PH test is good. Filtering out some onto dark cloth might yield residue you can test further. If coral or fine sand it will settle quickly and scratch a mirror when pushed along it. Save some for independent testing later when things settle down like at University (free if you know someone who knows someone). Cap and store samples away from sunlight and heat. Use gloves and mask. Uhh, for now...

It's interesting that they mention in the update that the problem they have encountered is salt water.




Late this afternoon, Board of Water Supply repair crews hit a snag while trying to reach the leaking pipe. Crews encountered salt water while digging and work came to a standstill. Work is expected to continue into the night


The link to the PDF Phage posted talks about a history of sink holes and caverns opening up historically at the King street junction near the University.

just had a look where this is on Google maps and it seems quite close. I wonder if there has been some new land movement or caverns opening that have disturbed this water main.

seems odd it took 3 days to realise it was a watermain if you have a street around the corner with customers complaining that their water is out.

That´s probably because the merky water is suffocating the fish that are used to clear water. Not because of toxins.

This peaks my interest… Mystery substance, remains mystery substance after 3+ days. That is interesting.

a water main. that's no fun. i was really hoping for something more exciting. seems odd that the water wasn't more clear coming out of it though. maybe the rush of it coming out was stirring up the sand on the bottom of the harbor.

If customers water is out then I was mistaken and Phage and others are right about the main. I smelled a coverup with all the delay to ident., notification and control of the "substance".

and you guys know we're talking about two different islands right? Puna is on the south coast of the Big Island and Kewalo Basin is on Oahu a couple hundred miles to the NW.
