The Navy is working multiple efforts to keep affected communities apprised and identify the source of the odor in the water.

  • The primary water distribution mains associated with the housing areas affected by possible potable water contamination have been flushed twice and the third flush is ongoing.
  • The Navy requested residents to flush lines in each residence.
  • An Information Call Center (INFOCELL) is set up to take calls from impacted housing residents (808) 448-2570, (808) 448-3262, and (808) 448-2583.  We encourage residents with concerns to call in order to identify locations that may be experiencing issues.

 

To date, all tests of water samples conducted by both the Hawaii Department of Health and the Navy have not detected petroleum constituents in initial testing.  The Navy is pursuing more stringent tests by independent labs on the mainland to ensure water purity meets EPA standards.

Approximately 200 residents have called the line for testing, and known impacted neighborhoods are currently Catlin Park, Halsey Terrace, Radford Terrace, Doris Miller, Moanalua Terrace, and Ohana Nui.

The Navy is continuing to collect and test samples, inspect water distribution systems and other parts of the Navy’s water distribution system to identify and characterize the source of the odor in the water.

The Navy continues to monitor and investigate and will update residents and other stakeholders.
