Worker finds mercury in health center restroom

The Honolulu Fire Department's hazardous materials team was called out Friday after about a teaspoon of mercury was found in a restroom at the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Care Center.

An employee discovered the toxic substance after the center at 86-120 Farrington Highway opened up at about 9 a.m.

The restroom was sealed off until the state's hazardous evaluation and emergency response unit could remove the mercury, fire Capt. Richard Soo said.

It was the 10th report of mercury on Oahu since March 12, when it was discovered at the Puuwai Momi public housing project and at Makalapa Park in Halawa.
