24-001 | March 6, 2024

HONOLULU, Hawaii —

Joint Task Force-Red Hill (JTF-RH) completed residual fuel removal activities at the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility (RHBFSF) today.

As of March 6, JTF-RH safely removed 61,414 gallons of accessible residual fuel.

Overall, JTF-RH safely removed 104,703,574 gallons of fuel from the facility, roughly six months ahead of schedule from the original Defueling Plan.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) are now conducting a Regulatory Interim Defueling Inspection to ensure and document all JTF-RH actions stipulated in the EPA Consent Order and DOH Emergency Order are complete. The inspection is expected to conclude this week.

Simultaneously, JTF-RH continues their turnover with the newly established Navy Closure Task Force to ensure continuity of mission for safety, security, and community engagement.
