HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Joint Task Force for Red Hill will be hosting two open house events this week regarding the defueling process.

The military says it’s targeting October for the start of the defueling process and they say the process could be mostly done by January 2024.

The open house events take place Tuesday, May 23 and Wednesday, May 24 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Keehi Lagoon Memorial Park.
