The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation reopened Kahalu‘u Beach Park in Kailua-Kona today after plumbing and maintenance repairs were completed.

The park was closed on Feb. 24 due to a broken sewer clean-out.

Parks staff worked steadily to repair the problem and ensure that the water quality at the site was acceptable under state Department of Health rules.

“We appreciate the hard work of our parks maintenance staff,” said Parks and Recreation Director Charmaine Kamaka. “They really pulled for us to get the park reopened quickly and safely.”

Kamaka thanked the public for their patience and understanding, and also thanked the Department of Environmental Management’s Wastewater Division for their assistance.
