The meeting will be at Radford High School, another site of Navy contamination and non action by the DOD, not caring for, not protecting our Aina … And our Wai..

The Navy is exempt from the EPA rules that Exxon, and other petroleum giants are required to adhere to. The Navy continues to be allowed to have a free range of degradating Hawaii’ s environment hand stamped and approved by the EPA , the Governor, and the Dept of Health who hides the facts of previous and ongoing leaks. The DOH regularly raises levels to mask the severity of contamination and threat to our drinking water.

The navy,the EPA and the DOH, have not disclosed the direction or depth of the contaminated plume from the red hill fuel leaks, the DOD left many unredmediated sites on Oahu, like Radford High School and Makalapa Elementary, also contaminated soil has been dug up and loosely dumped all over Oahu. The EPA had some records indicating 18 superfund sites on Oahu, including Radford and Red Hill, yet theses new disclosure’s are treated as if no one knew about these problems, when in fact its only been a culture of lies to cover up and hush up. The DOI, The DOD, The Governor the State of Hawaii and the EPA is not prepared for a catastrophic failure of just one of the 20 under ground fuel tanks at red hill. The lochs at pearl harbor and the watershed all run into the ocean, all part of the water table.
