23-001 | July 27, 2023

HONOLULU, Hawaii —

Joint Task Force – Red Hill (JTF-RH) has transitioned into the last phase of the surge tank draining evolution. To date, JTF-RH has removed 435,000 gallons of the approximately 480,000 gallons the tanks held before draining began July 17.

JTF-RH is moving the fuel from the surge tanks to above-ground tanks at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam to support operations and training. JTF-RH personnel remain focused on safety and continue to coordinate with the Environmental Protection Agency and Hawaii Department of Health as they execute this evolution.

JTF-RH also released an updated Defueling Dashboard today. The dashboard is published on the JTF-RH website and mobile app.

Joint Task Force-Red Hill is committed to the safe and expeditious defueling of the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility. For more information about JTF-RH, visit or download the mobile app by searching for JTF-Red Hill in the Apple iOS App Store and Google Play store.
