The Hawaii Department of Health has issued a brown water advisory for the Kauai due to the recent heavy rains.
The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm runoff from Waimea to Kealia. The water could be a result of overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris.
Health officials say if coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out of the water.
