Navy Confirms New 1,000-Gallon Fuel Release at Red Hill

The Navy has confirmed that an approximately 1, 000-gallon fuel leak was detected May 6 at the troubled Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility, a World War II-built facility that came under criticism following a 27, 000-gallon fuel release in 2014.

Navy Region Hawaii said in an email that "personnel responded to and contained a reported fuel release, initially assessed at approximately 1, 000 gallons, from a pipeline at the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility Thursday night. As designed, the fuel release went into a containment system in the tunnel where the pipeline is located, and the fuel was recovered. There appears to be no release into the environment."
