Kauai is under a brown water advisory
"The Hawai‘i Department of Health issued a brown water advisory for the entire island of Kaua‘i Monday.
“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,” the state Health Department website stated.
The Health Department also warned the public to stay out of waters near the Hanapepe River mouth and the canoe launch area about 50 yards upstream because of the sewage spill. State and county officials were monitoring the area."
The weather has really turned around and the ocean is diluting the problem quickly, but if the water is brown, best to go somewhere else and not chance staph or worse.
