A brown water advisory was issued by the state Department of Health on Monday from Nanakuli Beach Park to Waianae Boat Harbor.

Heavy rains have resulted in storm water runoff entering into coastal waters.

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, health officials say if the waters is brown, stay out.
