Hikers make big discovery after smelling beer in the woods
There are times when one is expected to smell the pungent smell of beer.
Walk in a park in Hawaii not among them.
That’s why Hawaii state health officials were called in when a hiker in the Waipo area of Hawaii near Honolulu received a gust of filth while walking, according to the report. KGMB-TV.
“The other day we came here, you would think it was a brasserie that hadn’t been open for three or four days,” said environmental activist Carroll Cox.
Tracing tracks from the park, state officials discovered that a spill from a storm pipe was causing alcohol to leak into the stream.
This in itself is a bit of a mystery because it’s not recent rain before the stench overflowed.
The state Department of Transportation, which owns the pipeline, said the spill came from a warehouse owned by Paradise Beverage, which is on the other side of the freeway where the spill occurred.
The company is still a mystery.
Anthony Rowe, the company’s chief operations officer, said: “We’ve asked the Department of Transport to come to their representatives and we’re dealing with them and we’ve also been contacted by the Department of Health. Contact us,” said Anthony Rowe, the company’s chief operating officer.

“It could have come from us so that’s why we are working with the appropriate authorities,” he said.
When the KGMB tested the water, they discovered that the stream had an alcohol content of 1.2% and a sugar content of 0.04%.
The state now says no water pollution leaking into the creek.
“It is worrisome. Cox said.
“Alcohol is not suitable for marine life; it’s toxic,” Cox said, according to SFGate.
Cox said that when he spoke to the hiker, the hiker said a similar incident happened about five years ago.
Cox didn’t want to let this problem down.
“Hawaii is a fragile environment and is always at risk from these types of waste,” Cox said.
“What we want to see here in this case is that the Hawaii State Clean Water Branch takes legal action against DOT, and then DOT inevitably takes action against the person responsible for the discharge, ‘ said Cox.
