The Department of Health has warned residents and visitors to stay out of waters contaminated with storm runoff at Hanakao’o Beach Park on Maui. 

A brown water advisory has been issued Tuesday for Hanakao’o Beach. The health department’s Clean Water Branch advised the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff to avoid “possible overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals and associated flood debris.”

Turbid water runoff have been known to attract sharks because of dead animals being washed into the ocean.
