East Hawaii Brown Water Advisory for March 2nd, 2020

A Brown Water Advisory has been issued on the East side of the island on Hawai‘i.

From our: HIRSC Team - Las Vegas/Weather Unit

From the State of Hawai'i Department of Health (DOH) - Clean Water Branch:

The recent heavy rain and high surf have resulted in stormwater runoff entering into coastal waters. The public is advised to stay out of floodwaters and stormwater 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. Continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow-up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns.
