Brown Water Advisories have been issued for the following places due to heavy rains:


  • Honolua Bay
  • Honokahua Bay


  • Waimea Bay
  • Magic Island
  • Bellows Beach

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. If the water is brown, however, stay out and continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns.
