Teenage Girl to State: Clean Up the Ala Wai and Comply With Law

When a Waikiki sewage pipe broke in 2006, prompting city officials to dump 48 million gallons of raw, spewing waste into the Ala Wai Canal, something stirred in the mind of Suzanna Bradley.

A few days later, a local real estate agent and surfer fell in the Ala Wai boat harbor. He later died from massive bacterial infections.

“It was a big scare,” Bradley recalls. She was just 10 years old.

Fast forward seven years. Bradley is a senior at Punahou. She is also fed up with lawmakers and state officials who she believes are shirking their responsibility to clean up the perpetually polluted waterway. The issue is personal because Bradley treasures the canal that she and friends regularly canoe paddle on.
