HONOLULU -

The state Department of Health announced Monday about 3,500 gallons of wastewater entered Waikele Stream, which empties into West Loch at Pearl Harbor.

Health officials say residential grease caused a manhole to overflow on Awamoi Street in Waipahu.

Warning signs have been posted and water samples will be taken.  The public is advised to stay out of Waikele Stream.
