BREMERTON, Wash. — Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton’s public works department says it has discovered another sewage spill — one that leaked an estimated 450,000 gallons (1.7 million liters) of wastewater into Puget Sound over the past two years.
The bathrooms in two temporary trailers constructed at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in 2016 were improperly connected to a storm water system instead of the wastewater system, the Kitsap Sun reported. As a result, flushes from the toilets flowed into Sinclair Inlet.
More service members could be at risk of losing their security clearances if they don’t keep on top of their finances, because of changes in rules for the security clearance process, according to advocates.
Under the new guidelines, officials will conduct “continuous” monitoring of federal employees who have roles in national security, including service members. Historically, individuals were up for periodic reviews every five to 10 years, depending on the type of clearance. The new, continuous evaluation will include a system that automatically pulls data on workers’ financialand criminal records, and, eventually, data from social media.
