HONOLULU (AP) — Work crews in Hawaii are repairing a broken main that spilled thousands of gallons of sewage into a drainage canal that empties into Pearl Harbor.

State health officials say more than 11,000 gallons of sewage was discharged Sunday at Ted Makalena Golf Course.

Honolulu officials say the broken main was connected to a pump station.

The area of Pearl Harbor where the canal empties is not a public recreation area, and the city has posted warning signs.
