Kahaluu Beach Park water quality advisory canceled

KAILUA-KONA — The state Department of Health Clean Water Branch on Friday canceled a water quality advisory for Kahaluu Beach Park in North Kona.

The advisory was issued Jan. 10 after the branch detected levels of enterococci as high as 324 per 100 mL at the beach during routine beach monitoring. On Friday, the branch said “enterococci levels no longer exceed advisory levels.”

DOH advisories typically remain in effect until water sample results no longer exceed the threshold level of 130 enterococci per 100 mL.

    Spencer Beach Park gets shut down if there is no water. Why doesn’t the Department of Clean Water Branch get it’s butt down to Pohoiki and shut down the beach until the county puts a water truck there to wash the bacteria off the people after they swim.. The State Water quality guy at the beach a few weeks back was yelling at people for swimming in the water and got in his truck and peeled out – he was mad BUT HAS HE DONE ANYTHING ABOUT IT????
