The files detail the progress being made as a result of the 2015 Administrative Order of Consent (AOC) between the Navy, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH).

These agencies work collaboratively to ensure the long-term security of Hawaii’s environment and safety of Oahu’s drinking water supply. Each agency is committed to ongoing operational and infrastructure improvements so the facility can carry out its primary mission as well as provide support across the State of Hawaii in times of need.
