Leak in Navy Fuel Tank Raises Concerns About Water Contamination By Sophie Cocke Honolulu Civil Beat (HI) January 16, 2014The U.S. Navy confirmed Thursday that one of its massive underground tanks near Pearl Harbor has a leak and may have spilled up to 20,000 gallons of aviation fuel, raising concerns about potential drinking water contamination.
