Posted November 5, 2020, 2:40 PM HST

A Brown Water Advisory has been issued at Wailua Bay.

Stormwater runoff has resulted in stormwater runoff entering into coastal waters. The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer, manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris. Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff, however, if the water is brown stay out.

Residents are advised to continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow-up with their primary care physician if they have any health concerns.
