Subject: [CPEO-MEF] FUEL: Red Hill Storage Facility Task Force (HI)
Red Hill Task Force holds first meeting
Report must be submitted to state Legislature before the start of next session

HONOLULU - A task force created after the spill of thousands of gallons of fuel from the Red Hill Fuel Storage Facility in Halawa met for the first time Wednesday in Kakaako. The eight member panel was created by state lawmakers after the Navy announced in January that up to 27,000 gallons of jet fuel had been released from Tank No. 5.

Gary Gill, the state's deputy health director for the environment, said there are many questions about Red Hill fuel contamination the task force needs to be answered before issuing a report to the Legislature in mid-December.

"What we don't have is how far and wide that contamination has spread; in what direction it spread, and at what level of contamination it may be spreading beyond the monitoring wells directly below the tanks," Gill told KITV4.
