Procedural Issue Contaminated Fresh Water System With Jet Fuel on USS Nimitz

Recommended Posts

Sailors couldn't use the potable water system aboard aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68) for three days after jet fuel contaminated the fresh water tanks last week, a Navy official told USNI News on Wednesday.

After discovering JP5 in the water while the carrier was at sea on Sept. 16, the potable water became safe to use again on Sept. 19 after flushing the system, Cmdr. Zach Harrell, a spokesman for Naval Air Forces, told USNI News.
