It’s been almost 2 months since a fuel tank sprang a leak at the Navy’s Red Hill facility, resulting in the release of 27,000 gallons of jet fuel. Water samples collected from the area show the water is safe to drink, but it’s still not clear how the leak started and what the long term impacts might be. HPR’s Molly Solomon has more.
