JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii – The Interagency Drinking Water System Team (IDWST) released post home and non-residential building flushing data for Iroquois Point (Zone A3) on the https://jbphh-safewaters.org website today.
Summaries of the laboratory testing results are posted for Zone A3. This website supplements the primary online resource for information about the interagency response at: www.navy.mil/jointbasewater.
The IDWST is composed of representatives from the Navy, Army, Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Navy and DOH took drinking water samples after homes and non-residential buildings were flushed. The drinking water meets EPA and DOH standards applicable to the Navy water system incident. IDWST submitted the results to Hawaii DOH for final review March 8.
Pending validation of these results, Hawaii DOH’s final review should take approximately seven days. DOH uses multiple lines of evidence to evaluate sample data. These lines of evidence are used to confirm no contamination is entering the Navy water system and no contamination remains in the affected zone. Once DOH determines the Navy’s drinking water is safe to drink, DOH will amend the health advisory for Zone A3.
The following information is provided to help interpret the data:
DOH’s Nov. 29, 2021, public health advisory for the Navy water system remains in effect for zones A3 (Iroquois Point), C1 (Sub Base), C2 (Hale Alii, Marine Barracks, Hospital Point), C3 (Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Hospital Point), D2 (Hale Na Koa, Officer Field, Onizuka Village), and D3 (Earhart Village).
