State health officials have issued a brown water advisory for the northwestern shores of Maui and Oahu’s Waimea Bay and eastern shores. 

Health officials said due to recent rains the public is advised to say out of flood waters and storm waters due to possible flows out of cesspools, sewer manholes and drainage ditches that could release toxic matter, including pesticides, animal feces, and dead animals. 

The brown water advisories were issued today for northwestern Maui and have continued for Waimea Bay and the eastern shores of Oahu from Kahuku to Makapuu since Wednesday.
