U.S. Navy Pays $94,200 Safe Drinking Water Act Penalty
U.S. Navy paid a civil penalty of $94,200 and closed nine large capacity cesspools (LCCs) at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. The Navy had closed six LCCs in 2012, but had failed to close the remaining three in a timely manner. The three remaining cesspools served an estimated 160 people at three separate facilities. The Navy has since closed the non-compliant cesspools.
