JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii – The U.S. Navy released system flushing data validated by the Interagency Drinking Water System Team (IDWST) for the Pearl City Peninsula (Zone A1) today.
“The data we are releasing today demonstrates that the testing is working as designed,” said Karl Banks, one of several drinking water experts from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency working as part of the IDWST. “This flushing, testing, and evaluation process will ensure that safe drinking water is restored to the residents and workers at JBPHH.”
A summary of the lab results can be found here and the complete lab results can be found here.
Samples met Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) criteria for Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and safe drinking water standards. Based on these test results, flushing teams have been conducting residential and non-residential flushing after residents were notified. The residential and non-residential building flushing data will be made available once it has been validated and reviewed by the IDWST.
