Environmentalists, Lawmakers Frustrated with Molasses Spill
State officials have released new information on the Matson spill that leaked 1400 tons of molasses into Honolulu harbor earlier this month.
A state inspector reported seeing molasses dripping from the same pipe last year.
After receiving a letter from the Department of Transportation, the shipping company inspected the pipe, but did not find a leak.
As HPR’s Molly Solomon reports, the continuing investigation has prompted concern, especially when it comes to accountability for damage to Hawaii’s reefs and fisheries.
