JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii — The Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), in coordination with the Interagency Drinking Water System Team, released validated testing information for Aliamanu Military Reservation (AMR) neighborhood, and as previously reported the area coded “zone H2” did not meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DOH standards for safe drinking water.
The comprehensive test results can be found on the DOH website. The exceedance can be found on page 8.
The result exceeded the Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) standard of 200 parts per billion (PPB). In response, immediate action was taken to conduct another main line water distribution system flush for the entirety of AMR housing area, which included zones H1, H2 and H3. Army leaders discussed the system re-flush of AMR during the January 6 Task Force Ohana virtual Town Hall.
