Navy’s newest aircraft carriers have clogged toilets that cost $400k to fix, report says

The Navy’s two newest aircraft carriers have a problem with their toilets getting clogged and it costs $400,000 to fix each time there’s an issue with their sewage systems, according to a Congressional watchdog report released Tuesday.

The Norfolk-based USS Gerald R. Ford and USS George H.W. Bush were both built with a new toilet and sewage system that’s similar to what is used on commercial aircraft, but increased in scale to accommodate more than 4,000 people, the report said.

But there’s been unexpected and frequent clogging of the system, causing the Navy to determine it needs to acid flush each aircraft carrier’s sewage system “on a regular basis.”
