The state Department of Health Clean Water Branch issued a Brown Water Advisory for Honolua Bay and Honokahua Bay in West Maui following heavy rains on Sunday.

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.”
