An estimated 10,100 gallons of wastewater overflowed in Spreckelsville on Maui over the weekend.

The incident was reported at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 8, 2011, at Laulea Place.  County authorities say the overflow was due to a mechanical failure at the Spreckelsville Pump Station.

The overflow was stopped by 9:30 a.m.  According to county officials, the wastewater overflowed from a manhole fronting the Spreckelsville Pump Station, and flooded 245 feet of roadway on Laulea Place.
