  • Poipu/Koloa, Hawai’i with 3,600 cesspools.

  • There is a total of 43,000 residential cesspools statewide that are on a priority list for replacement.

    “We urge communities to participate in these important conversations to prevent cesspools from damaging our drinking waters, surface waters, beaches and coral habitats,” said Sina Pruder, DOH Acting Environmental Management Division Chief. “As a community, we all need to act now and explore possible solutions together to protect our health and the environment.”

    The 2017 Legislature passed a bill to address the cesspool situation. Signed into law by Gov. David Ige in July 2017, Act 125 requires allcesspools in the state to be upgraded, converted or connected to the sewer system before 2050 unless they are exempted. The law also broadens eligibility criteria for tax credits to offset the costs for homeowners.

    The public may direct any questions about the public meetings or cesspools to the DOH Wastewater Branch at (808) 586-4294.

Mosquito Prevention Tips from the Department of Health 

- Get rid of any standing water in buckets, wheelbarrows and bins. Make sure that items such as these are stored in covered areas and turned over to stop them from collecting standing water. Empty & clean containers every seven (7) days as mosquito eggs can survive desiccation.

- Fix leaky faucets and hoses that are dripping water.

- Be mindful of leafy plants in your yard, such as bromeliads, that collect and hold water. Treat them with insect and/or pest repellent, if possible.

- Clean out gutters regularly so water can run freely.

- Clean up trash and debris around the home and yard. For example, dispose of old tires or other containers that may hold water.

- Take steps to stop puddles of standing water from forming in your hard.

- Repair doors, screens and windows to keep insects and pests out.

- Get rid of slugs and snails by applying slug bait according to label instructions.

- Control rat populations by using bait and traps. Be sure to follow label instructions for setup and removal.

- Cover and protect water catchment tank at all times. Inspect regularly.

- If you have large containers of water near or around the house, use a screen/wire or plastic netting that is at least 18 meshes to the inch or any other material to prevent mosquito breeding/egg laying in standing water.
