The Dept. of Health has issued a Brown Water Advisory for Kauai’s south shore, from Waimea to Kealia, due to recent heavy rains.

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. If coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out.
