Brown water advisories for Kauai, Oahu

The state Dept. of Health’s Clean Water Branch has issued brown water advisories for the island of Kauai, and on Oahu, Waimea Bay, Ala Moana Bowls, and offshore of Bellows Beach, all due to 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.

Other coastal areas not listed in these advisories may also be affected, so if the water is brown stay out and continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns.
