FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii — Preliminary tests disclosed the presence of petroleum in tap water from an elementary school near Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, the Hawaii Department of Health said Wednesday.

Samples collected Tuesday from Red Hill Elementary School, which is near military housing and uses the Navy’s water system, were tested at a lab at the University of Hawaii and found positive for a “petroleum product,” the health department said in a news release.
