January will mark five years since 27,000 gallons of fuel leaked out of a massive underground facility at Red Hill and we still don’t know where it all went.

There is concern in the community that the spill could migrate to an aquifer which supplies a portion of Honolulu’s drinking water. Members of the Senate’s Red Hill task force were set to meet Wednesday morning to talk about the condition of fuel tanks.
