USS Tripoli facing ongoing drinking water issues

Recommended Posts

The amphibious assault ship Tripoli is having problems with its onboard drinking water system, but officials have declined to fully explain the nature of the problem or why a ship commissioned in 2020 is grappling with such issues.

Expeditionary Strike Group 3 spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Lauren Spaziano said that the issue did not impact the Tripoli during its seven-month, maiden deployment. However, the ship is now encountering problems that limit its ability to generate potable water due to ongoing repairs to some reverse osmosis water units.
