Kailua Bay Water Quality Advisory for June 21st, 2021

The Hawai'i Department of Health (HDOH) issues a Brown Water Advisory for the waters of Kailua Bay in North Kona following a heavy runoff/rainfall event on Saturday, June 19th, 2021.

Published By: HIRSC - Weather Team

Heavy rain has 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.
