A Brown Water Advisory has been issued for West Maui from Honolua to Honokōwai.

The Department of Health Clean Water Branch reports that heavy rain has resulted in stormwater runoff entering into coastal waters at the location.

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, the public is advised to stay out.

The public is also advised to practice good personal hygiene and follow-up with a primary care physician if health concerns surface.
