The Navy is investigating reports of “chemical odors” in drinking water at several homes at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam. Residents of military housing reported an odor on Sunday night, according to a Navy press release.

The Navy said on Sunday night that it was currently testing water, with no “immediate signs” that it was unsafe.

“Navy technicians visited several homes in the family who reported the odor and immediately went to the Navy’s drinking water wells to investigate,” the press release said. “The water in the Navy’s wells and water tanks had no fuel or chemical odors or signs. Experts took water samples at several locations for testing.”

The Navy said it is working with the Hawaii Department of Health to test water samples and will renew the population.
