Okay, I did not get this from a Hawaii press. I got it from my home town ppr--L.A Times. So take it anyway you want, but I just thought I'd share an excerpt from the 4/01/06 edition:
"HONOLULU — About 48 million gallons of raw sewage has gushed into the ocean off Oahu since a major sewer line ruptured last week, and it could take a month before bacteria levels at Waikiki beaches return to normal, city officials said Friday."
AS I said in other posts, I postponed until late May. What added to my decision is that my little girl is getting sick, though. I probably would have still postponed even if she was not ill. Penalties were not THAT bad ($100/ticket + $25 for the room).
