Brown Water Advisory posted for Maui

MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Brown Water Advisory has been issued for Honokahua and Honolua Bay due to heavy rains.

Officials advise 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.

Health officials say the brown water will most likely spill into Oneloa Bay and beyond due to increased turbid flow from Honokahua Stream.
