Navy Releases Another 1,000 Gallons Of Raw Sewage Into Pearl Harbor


Recommended Posts

More than 1,000 gallons of wastewater spilled into Pearl Harbor on Thursday from a 12-inch wastewater line that broke, the Navy announced Thursday afternoon.

Utility workers secured the leak at Pier B-23 and installed a plug, the Navy said in a press release, but the leaked wastewater is “unrecoverable.” 

The spill comes just two days after the Department of Health fined the Navy nearly $9 million for wastewater violations that contaminated the ocean near Pearl Harbor with fecal bacteria. Along with the Navy’s contamination disaster at Red Hill, the military’s pollution of Oahu’s coastal waters has fueled community demands for the military to be better stewards of Hawaii’s environment or reduce its presence in the islands.
