An open letter to the President

POTUS, direct the closure & defueling of the Navy’s Red Hill Facility in O’ahu.

146 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

I’m writing to ask you to direct the immediate closure and defueling of the U.S. Navy’s Red Hill Facility in O’ahu. The U.S. Navy’s Red Hill Facility has leaked over 180,000 gallons of fuel since 1943, poisoning the drinking water supply and endangering the people, wildlife, and ecosystems of Oʻahu. In December 2021, the Navy was to suspend operations and defuel over 100 million gallons, but have yet to fulfill that obligation nor commit to a transparent timeline in response to the urgent situation. In solidarity with the people of O’ahu, I demand: A commitment from the Navy to defuel Red Hill by September 2022; Full transparency for all information and data—past, current, and future— regarding the status of the Red Hill Facility and the safety of local water; Department of Defense compensation to all residents, workers, schools, businesses, and government agencies for past and future costs incurred from aquifer contamination; Full community oversight in the cleanup and restoration of the current contamination of Kapūkakī and the groundwater aquifer below it; and Alternative fuel arrangements that do not threaten the water and foundation of life for other communities in Hawai’i and elsewhere. President, you can do this with the stroke of a pen. Please help protect one of the most beautiful and pristine places on earth. Thanks.
