Emergency Bypass Project Hits a Milestone-Wastewater Pipe Sunk in Ala Wai Canal


That 5,000-foot long wastewater pipe that has been snaking down the Ala Wai Canal is being submerged today.

The city announced today (Monday, July 17, 2006) that contractors have begun the sinking of the 48-inch outside diameter High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe.

The floating pipe has become a familiar sight to residents on both sides of the canal who witnessed it winding its way down the canal over the last month.
