Cause: Heavy surf

A Brown Water Advisory has been issued at Kaena Point to Kahuku on O‘ahu. Heavy surf has resulted in coastal waters reaching into foliage and other areas above the normal high-water mark, including roadways. The public is advised to stay out of coastal waters that appear brown due to possible runoff containing pesticides and other chemicals, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, and debris that might be in the water. Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff, however, if the water is brown you are advised to stay out. Continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow-up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns. For more information:!/event/1741/details/view
