Nimitz Stuck In Port As Navy Not Sure if Fuel Is Still Leaking into Ship’s Water

Recommended Posts

Days after saying that the water on the USS Nimitz was clean following a recent issue with fuel leaking into the ship’s water, the Navy is acknowledging that tests are still showing signs of contamination leading the service to delay a planned deployment of the aircraft carrier.

The problem with fuel in the water was first detected on the evening of Sept. 16 while the ship was at sea. Three days later, the Navy declared the issue resolved once the ship was moored at Naval Station North Island, California.
