County officials are announcing that construction of the Salt Pond Beach Park effluent system for the main pavilion as well the west comfort station have been completed ahead of schedule.

“I want to thank our teams with the Department of Public Works and the Department of Parks and Recreation for their work to bring these comfort stations in working order almost two months ahead of schedule,” Mayor Derek Kawakami said. “With construction for the effluent system complete, both the main pavilion and west comfort station are now available to beachgoers.”

Contracted by Earthworks Pacific Inc., the $1.19 million project conveys wastewater from the main pavilion and west comfort station to the county’s sewage collection system to be treated at the county’s ‘Ele‘ele wastewater treatment plant.
