Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility

In January 2014, the U.S. Navy reported a 27,000 gallon leak of jet fuel from Tank 5 at its Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility. The Navy owns twenty fuel tanks in the Red Hill area, each able to contain up to 12.5 million gallons of fuel. These tanks are located 100 feet above the groundwater aquifer. 100 feet is the height of the State Capitol. This aquifer is also the same one that BWS uses to provide water to residents from Moanalua to Hawaii Kai.

The BWS regularly posts updates online about the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility and has made available a searchable online repository of several hundred documents pertaining to leaks at the facility, including inspection reports, groundwater monitoring reports. 

If you have questions or comments about Red Hill, contact the BWS Communications Office by phone at (808) 748-5041 or by email at contactus@hbws.org.
