JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii – The Interagency Drinking Water System Team (IDWST), which is composed of representatives from the Navy, Army, Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, submitted test results and other operational information for Zone D1, Hale Moku and Hokulani communities, to Hawaii DOH for final review.
Hale Moku and Hokulani provide housing for all branches of the military with predominantly Navy residents. Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary School, Center Drive Child Development Center (CDC), and Kids Cove 24/7 CDC are also located in Zone D1.
Post home and non-residential building flushing data results for Zone D1 will be posted on the IDWST Flushing and Sampling Data website. This data includes lab results from the Navy and Hawaii DOH. A summary of the laboratory testing results for Zone D1 can be found here.
Hawaii DOH’s final review should take approximately seven days in accordance with the IDWST’s approved Drinking Water Sampling Plan, Addendum 2. If Hawaii DOH determines the Navy’s drinking water is safe to drink, it will amend the health advisory for Zone D1. Hawaii DOH’s multiple lines of evidence evaluate sample data and how the Navy water system maintains operations to ensure safe drinking water. After Hawaii DOH amends the advisory for Zone D1, the housing office will email a letter to residents from the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) commanding officer stating their water is safe to drink. Once Zone D1 residents are notified, those who are occupying temporary alternate lodging are expected to re-occupy their residence within two days.
To support residents and ensure any future water issues are immediately addressed, the Navy has established rapid response teams who are available to respond to calls 24 hours a day. The teams can be reached by calling the JBPHH Emergency Operations Center at any of the following phone numbers:
