The Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi is demanding that the Hawaiʻi Department of Health, EPA, and U.S. Navy:
- Install sufficient “sentinel” monitoring wells to guard public drinking water sources from possible contamination currently in the aquifer;
- Locate the fuel that has already leaked from the storage facility and clean it up; and
- Install genuine leak prevention systems, not only leak detection systems, that will guarantee there will be no future leaks from this facility.
If these expectations cannot be met, then the obsolete fuel storage tanks at Red Hill should be retired, and the stored fuel relocated to modern and unhazardous facilities that comply with today’s strict environmental standards.
Please consider signing the petition.
