Hawaii turning into a Shithole State?

HONOLULU—Paradise has a sewage problem.

Cesspools—holes in the ground where untreated human waste is deposited—have become a crisis in Hawaii, threatening the state’s drinking water, its coral reefs and the famous beaches that are the lifeblood of its tourist economy.

Sewage from cesspools is seeping into some of Hawaii’s ocean waters, where it has been blamed for infections suffered by surfers and snorkelers. It is also entering the drinking water in part of the state, pushing nitrate levels close to the legal limit.

Hawaii has 88,000 cesspools across its eight major islands, more than any other state. Collectively, they deposit 53 million gallons of raw sewage into the ground every day, according to the state health department. More than 90% of the state’s drinking water comes from groundwater wells.

    So before now, no one knew the state had 88,000 active cesspools? The bureaucrats have done a good job of hiding shit.

    I read awhile back that ‘homeless’ people were flocking to Hawaii because they think they can live off the land and the weather is conducive to sleeping outside.
    how much higher has the population (of parasites) risen recently?

      So they’re spending your handouts to buy a plane ticket to Hawaii to make their lifestyle easier rather than using it to improve their lives here…
      Wait til they find out just how expensive Hawaii is.

    What happens when Lefties run government they way they want with no checks on them.

    Remember that old wheeze about a Conservative is a Lefty who’s just been mugged? Looks like it’s coming to a head and couldn’t be happening at a better time as the Trump Revolution starts rolling.

    This has been going on for years. Watch any “Dog the Bounty Hunter” episode and you can see homeless camps every-fucking-where on those islands. Right next to the big beaches, huge complexes of homeless.

    Yes, it’s been a shithole for over 30 years. Probably should never have gotten statehood status.

    Been there, was not impressed. Other than the beach and surfing, yawn, the only other thing of interest was the volcano. Glad I didn’t have to pay to go.

    It was libtard heaven 30 years ago; I won’t go back to see the degradation that exists now.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
