The advisory was issued on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, but remained in effect at last report.

Honokahua Bay is located in the area that includes DT Fleming Beach Park in Kapalua.

The area has been the subject of repeat advisories with a previous one issued on April 1st following heavy rains.

According to the advisory, the department advises the public 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,” the advisory stated.
