Bacteria Levels Elevated at Puhi Bay, Back to Normal at Onekahakaha Beach
* Updated June 24, 2:57 PM
Bacteria levels at Onekahakaha Beach Swimming Area are now back to normal, however, authorities are retesting Puhi Bay after detecting high levels of enterococci in the water.
DOH’s Clean Water Branch reported levels 2005 per 100 mL at Puhi Bay during a routine beach monitoring. DOH is uncertain about the representativeness of the first sample and is retesting the waters, which have historically met the acceptable beach threshold level.
There is no known source of fecal contamination. The results of the retest will be provided as soon as they’re available.
