HNN/Civil Beat Special Report: Navy’s Water System Woes Won't Be Resolved Soon - Honolulu Civil Beat

The Navy water crisis is not yet a month old.

But the threat posed by the Red Hill underground fuel storage facility is decades in the making, advocates and government leaders say.

Some call it a slow-moving disaster. Others say the threat is only poised to grow.

But whatever’s next, one thing is certain: The problem isn’t expected to be resolved anytime soon.

To help the community better understand how we got here and what’s at stake, Hawaii News Now partnered with Honolulu Civil Beat to put together a digital special report on the crisis.
