Oahu’s heavy rain forecast could delay the US Navy’s timetable for discharging polluted water into its system.

Captain Darren Guenther of the Navy Region Hawaii stated that “With that,(referring to the heavy rainfall) we’re going to be very closely watching the amount of water going into the storm drains,”  on Friday, Dec. 31. “There’s a possibility if we get a lot of rain, we may need to slow some of our flushing operations so we don’t overburden the drains.” the captain added

It is not the only cause of delays.

Questions from residents of Kapilina Beach Homes have been postponed for almost a week.

Also, the in-home flushing at the existing 635 homes in Pearl City was expected to wrap up on Dec. 31, 2021.

The Navy says it can hold an open house before it resumes.
