Oahu under brown water advisory

Posted: Updated:

A Brown Water Advisory has been issued for the island of Oahu because of heavy rains and flood conditions.

The Department of Health 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.
