LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The State Department of Health has issued a Brown Water Advisory for the areas between Wailua River mouth to, and including, Lydgate Park, on the island of Kauai.
Heavy rains resulted in storm water runoff entering into coastal waters. DOH 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.
Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff. However, if the water is brown stay out.
