In early September 2015, I swam at Kaimana Beach 3-4 days after a sewage spill, AFTER the "all clear" sign was given for swimming, and instantly got a bad sinus infection that I think has stayed with me to some extent ever since. Antibiotics don't seem to be the right treatment. Trying to figure out the next step -- I didn't come close to dying, but I believe it has compromised my overall health. Hawaiian tourism is the goose that lays the golden egg in Hawaii, so they don't want negative press about the ocean, and yet, they keep unloading their sewage every time it rains and systems overflow, which is more and more often. There's nothing "all clear" about the ocean there anymore.
