Wailea Beach under brown water advisory

A brown water advisory has been issued at Wailea Beach on Maui after high surf resulted in coastal waters reaching into foliage and other areas above the normal high-water mark, the state Department of Health said Friday.

The public is advised to stay out of coastal waters that appear brown due to possible runoff containing pesticides and other chemicals, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens and debris.
