Brown water advisory issued for China Walls, Kuliouou Beach Park

  • COURTESY HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

    The coastline from Kawaikui Beach Park to Paiko Lagoon and Maunalua Bay Beach Park is under a brown water advisory.

The state Health Department issued a brown water advisory this morning for the area stretching from China Walls to Kuliouou Beach Park.

Rain has resulted in stormwater runoff entering coastal waters, according to the state Health Department. The area includes waters fronting Kawaikui Beach Park, Paiko Lagoon and Maunalua Bay Beach Park as well.

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. While not all coastal areas may be affected by runoff, the state Health Department recommends staying out if the water is brown.

Updates on all water advisories, including a high bacteria count issued for Puako Middle of Lot on Hawaii island, are available here.
