HALAWA, Hawaii (May 28, 2024) A temporary vent at the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility (RHBFSF) undergoes final preparations before venting operations in Halawa, Hawaii, May 28, 2024. The vent was built to use fan power to pull fuel vapor from the fuel tanks inside the facility. After receiving approval from the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), Navy Closure Task Force-Red Hill will begin tank cleaning operations by venting Tank 8 at the facility. The tank ventilation and air monitoring procedures have undergone rigorous modeling and regulatory scrutiny to ensure the safety of the surrounding community while allowing workers to safely enter and clean the interior of the tanks. Charged with the safe decommissioning of the RHBFSF, Navy Closure Task Force-Red Hill was established by the Department of the Navy as a commitment to the community and the environment.
