On Friday, the Clean Water Branch of the state Dept. of Health advised the public to stay out of the water at Waimea Bay in Kauai.

It has found large quantities of a fecal bacterium known as enterococci in the area.

Contact with the water may cause illness.

This advisory will remain in effect until water sample results no longer exceed the recreational water quality standard.
