(AP) — The U.S. Navy said it detected high levels of petroleum in the tap water of a home as it tries to prepare Pearl Harbor military housing for the return of families who evacuated when jet fuel poisoned their water. The Navy says it found petroleum at a level of 460 parts per billion in one Halsey Terrace home north of Honolulu’s airport. That’s more than the 211 parts per billion limit the state Department of Health set for total petroleum hydrocarbons. The Navy has been testing the water in the neighborhood after flushing clean water through its pipes to clear the contamination.
