Diesel contamination at Tripler well raises alarm By Gordon Y.K. Pang Honolulu Star-Advertiser (HI) May 21, 2014The preliminary finding of high levels of diesel at a monitoring well at Tripler Army Medical Center is prompting new alarms from state and city officials.
State Deputy Health Director Gary Gill told members of the City Council Public Works and Sustainability Committee Wednesday that he was informed by the Navy last week about the new petroleum contaminant. The preliminary findings showed 790 and 660 micrograms per liter, which are above the Health Department's "environmental action level" of 100 micrograms per liter.
The news comes on the heels of the Jan. 13 discovery that an underground storage tank at nearby Red Hill leaked up to 27,000 gallons of jet fuel. Health Department and Honolulu Board of Water Supply officials have said that to date, there have been no indication the fuel has contaminated the groundwater aquifer. The cause of the leak has not yet been determined.
