Public asked to avoid waters near Kailua Beach, Kaneohe Bay

The public is advised to stay out of waters near Kailua Beach Park and Kaneohe Bay following wastewater discharge from nearby manholes on Sunday.

The entire island of Oahu is currently under a brown water advisory due to the heavy rain over the weekend. The public is asked to remain out of these waters until this advisory has been removed.

An estimated 30,000 gallons of discharge entered into Kaelepulu Stream near Kawailoa Road, which empties into Kailua Beach. City crews are working on repairs and warning signs will be posted this morning.
