1982 Report on Fuel Tanks and pipeline leaks at Pearl Harbor today causes oil in 1/8 of Honolulu’s water supply

0DTIC ADA119026: A-E Services to Perform a Cathodic Protection Survey of the Bulk Fuel Terminals at N.S.C. Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Volume II. page 660

Pearl Harbor is an ecological disaster area thanks to the US Navy and their leaking oil tanks that rest on the aquifer – leaking since at least 1982 according to Navy report.

Volume 1 is located at this link , it includes maps of the sites. Volume 1 maps are below:

DTIC ADA119026: A-E Services to Perform a Cathodic Protection Survey of the Bulk Fuel Terminals at N.S.C. Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Volume II. This documents each leak and its position in the pipeline that also includes the water pipeline and the tanks of oil that are on top of the aquifer.

The Navy is also censoring all mention of the crisis as Dec 7th comes along the 80th Anniversary of the Bombing of Pearl Harbor but what are the survivors going to drink as the tap water is now toxic. The NAVY screwed up, again and instead of addressing the leaking oil tanks and pipeline they let it fester and now 1/8 of Honolulu’s water supply is contaminated with oil. The Navy is distributing bottled water and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for their PR and the people are appalled at the results.

SECRET

Maxwell: We called this conference together to make certain recommendations to’ BuShips on the means and methods to decontaminate salt water piping based on experiments conducted at this Yard – using ammonium citrate solution and muriatic acid solution. We found that muriatic acid removes all the foreign matter and activity. It does a complete job. The ammonium citrate does a similar job to a lesser extent – about 90% of the activity is removed. We found a medicine that can be used – it may not be the best, etc.

Dr. Scott and Dr. Rodenbaugh, are you in a position to give us a few answers that we are after – when should we use this medicine – what standard should we use – when should we use the acid and when should we use the citrate thru the salt water system?

Rodenbaugh: You mean as to how much radiation you have in the systems? You may ask me from a medical point of view, but ask Dr. Scott about the physical aspects.

[It is important to note that the safe radiation levels at the time did not put into consideration the cancer hazard and all they were concerned about is preventing radiation sickness. All of the sailors involved in this operation were later compensated with a settlement from the United States after Congressional Hearings in the Clinton Administration, the ones still alive of course.]

PART I

DECONTAMINATION OF TARGET VESSELS

1. As a result of Test Able on 1 July, no extensive deposit of long life radioactive fission products or alpha emitters was found on the target vessels. Radioactivity existing was induced type and was of very short half-life. Within a period of twenty four hours after fission of the bomb the level of radioactivity permitted reoccupation of surviving targets, with the exception of concrete barge YO-160, without radiological hazard. Consequently no decontamination of target vessels was required. Continue reading “OPERATION CROSSROADS, RADIOLOGICAL DECONTAMINATION OF TARGET AND NON- TARGET VESSELS Part I”
