(AP) — The state Department of Health says tap water in one Pearl Harbor neighborhood is safe to drink more than two months after petroleum leaked from a Navy fuel storage facility, contaminated the drinking water supply and sickened thousands. The department says residents in the Red Hill neighborhood may once again use their water. The area includes Red Hill Elementary and 135 homes managed by the Army. Eighteen other zones remain under an advisory from the department saying their water is not safe to drink. The Navy’s water system serves about 93,000 people living and working in and around Pearl Harbor.
