Brown Water Advisory StatewideAugust 23, 2018, 9:56 PM HST · Updated August 23, 9:56 PM 1 Comment
Hurricane Lane has resulted in stormwater runoff entering into coastal waters.
This advisory is preemptive for some areas, however it is anticipated that most coastal waters will be affected by stormwater runoff.
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, however, if the water is brown stay out.
Continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow-up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns.
