The average single family household in Honolulu pays $98 a month in sewer fees, and that charge is set to rise 5 to 6 percent a year for the next 6 years as the City upgrades to federal standards. As part of a series on Honolulu’s infrastructure, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa set out to see what goes on at the other end of the flush.
The City and County of Honolulu’s Tour de Trash for wastewater is already filled, but other free excursions are available through the year at www.opala.org
. Tomorrow, Wednesday, the City Council will consider a bill which attempts to tie fees more closely to water usage.
