Hawai‘i Island Brown Water Advisory
A Brown Water Advisory is being issued for the northern and eastern coast of the Big Island, including Mahukona Beach Park, due to heavy rains.
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, if the water is brown, stay out and continue to practice good personal hygiene.
Follow up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns.
