The state is retesting waters at Spencer Beach Park after high bacteria levels were detected.

According to the Hawai‘i State Department of Health, 453 per 100 mL levels were detected during routine beach monitoring. The state is uncertain of these numbers as the beach has historically met the acceptable beach threshold level, and there is no known source of fecal contamination.

The waters have been retested and the state will update the notification based on the results.
