Navy Says It Has Found the Source of Water Contamination Aboard Carrier, Leading to More Questions

Recommended Posts

The Navy says water from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln's bilges, a type of drainage system, leaked into drinking water on the ship and was responsible for the "odor and cloudy appearance" that sailors reported last month.

That disclosure, however, raises the possibility that there were other potentially harmful substances often found in bilgewater being consumed by sailors but not previously acknowledged by the Navy.
