Upon closer inspection, corrosion may be eating away at Red Hill storage tanks

A new study suggests that the Navy’s massive Red Hill fuel tanks are in worse shape than initially thought. In 2014, 27,000 gallons leaked from one of the Navy’s aging tanks. The Navy recently examined one of the steel tanks that didn’t leak. Upon further inspection, officials found corrosion and thinning in seven out of 10 sections that samples were taken from.
