UPDATE 4/20/20  It has been over one month since DOH declared, but this morning they announced,   The Brown Water Advisory for the Island of Maui has been canceled.”

UPDATE: 4/6/20 SINCE WE POSTED THIS ALERT A FEW WEEKS AGO, THE DOH HAS NOT RESCINDED IT.

But today they announced   “  Due to the shelter-in-place order from Governor Ige, DOH has suspended all routine coastal beach monitoring and will not resume monitoring until the order is lifted. Although all State and County parks have been closed for public gatherings, the public is still allowed to swim, surf, and recreate in the water, for exercise, while being mindful of social distancing requirements. No updated water quality testing information will be available to the public to inform personal risk in recreating in the water, so please use common sense and stay safe. 

The Brown Water Advisories that have been posted remain applicable at all beaches. If it’s brown, turn around.
