Department of Health

A brown water advisory has been issued for Keehi Lagoon.

Due to heavy rains, the Department of Health Clean Water Branch is advising the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff.

The public is also urged to stay out of flood waters due to possible overflowing cesspools and sewer manholes.

Storm runoff could contain pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens (leptospirosis), chemicals, and associated flood debris.

If coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out.
