Sailors of the US Navy aircraft carrier: “We reported about the poor condition of the water on the ship, we were told: if you don’t want to drink, don’t drink”

Proceedings continue in the United States over the contamination of drinking water aboard two aircraft carriers. The contamination was identified in September. Several sailors from the crew of the aircraft carrier "Abraham Lincoln" got food poisoning, picking up E. coli.

During the official investigation, the sailors said that they immediately noticed the unpleasant smell of water intended for drinking. As one of the sailors told the investigating authorities, several people from the crew turned to the command with a question about whether everything was in order with the water. It is also reported that after the "Abraham Lincoln" left the base in San Diego, the water began to become cloudy. It was noticeable, as they say, with the naked eye. Brown water flowed.



From the sailor's testimony:

The representative of the command told us that the water is absolutely safe, adding that if we do not want to drink it, then we can not drink it. He also added that then we will use the water to wash the deck.

The commander of the Abraham Lincoln, Amy Bauernschmidt, subsequently informed the crew that bilge water, which leaked through the ventilation hole, was the cause of contamination of the drinking water in the tanks.

Bilge water is water from a drainage system where sewage is stored until it can be safely discharged. Bilge water may contain technical oils, contaminated with bacteria from sewage.

It is reported that the command took action within XNUMX hours, ordering the use of water from the second tank, the analysis of which showed that it does not contain pathogenic bacteria.

According to the American press, the sailors "expressed concern that the command did not immediately begin to take action after the report on the poor state of the water." Commander Emir Bauernschmidt reportedly took action only the next morning after the report of the sailors.

          I remember like a bad dream, a technologist was a woman on a fisherman! Six months, she had a mother of dog puppies. And there was also a minder in the fleet, her name was Petrovich, women were afraid to wash with her in the same bath. lol

            Was on a business trip in the early 90s. Carrying concrete with mixers was exotic then. Marina, about forty years old, carried concrete on a dump truck-"bucket".
            At first, the locals and I tried to giggle - a woman on a ZiL carries concrete. And the car breaks down - does he go to the peasants for help? And what does it pay? feel
            The locals called us blockheads, they said that the whole garage goes to her for advice, they paid her with Snickers - they were exotic then and were expensive.

            So I don’t know how American women are, but Russian women are different in relation to technology.
            By the way, my wife, of course, is unlikely to do anything on the highway with a stalled car, but she famously changes her wheels for winter ones. Drifting on ice wow! - Studied extreme driving. I studied not for the sake of showing off, for the sake of safety in critical situations. Agree, Andrew - for the average woman is not so bad.

        Once the water has almost run out on the stern, but there is no plan, we need to finish off another 200 tons. They left it for the necessary needs, and they opened the tank to drink, the boatswain in a gas mask climbed up to draw a dead level. The rats went first, then the water...

            It's practically a school curriculum. As for, indeed, dangerous moments - all the operation work is preliminarily and very carefully rehearsed by scientists, designers and technologists, and not by the military. The military can only repeat all this, like trained monkeys in a circus - without any opportunity to understand the essence of what is happening, for a candy or a banana.
            The fact that not a single nuclear aircraft carrier has yet exploded at full speed, like a locomotive with an overheated boiler, is not the merit of the military, and never has been. An aircraft carrier is still the same locomotive, only very safe and even more expensive.
            But the stokers on it are all the same t.u.p.o.r.y.l.y.e. And they get all the same pennies and all the same soot. Unless no one else throws coal with a shovel, and even lead walls do not save from soot ...
            But, the above essence of the matter is, in general, does not change in any way.
            If in doubt, look at the photo again.

      We will load the IL-76 to the eyeballs and send it on autopilot. Of course, there will also be water. But, only in the tank for biowaste)) The rest of the place, of course, will be occupied by TNT equivalent, but ... of the highest quality)). I would even load the cockpit to capacity with something like that. For example, striking elements.
      And then let it land. Directly to the aircraft carrier)) ... We will send condolences later - by dry cargo ship or tanker)).

      When I was in the USSR Navy, this happened on a small, compared to a nuclear aircraft carrier, TFR. The water, however, was of a normal color and without an unpleasant odor. But if the titer and if the index in one of the tanks is outside the norm. And the ship was being prepared for combat duty in the Atlantic. What to do? Drain the water, re-disinfect the tank, fill with new water. There is a lot to do, the warhead-5 was engaged in this. Can you imagine - how many worries does the warhead have besides the tank? They acted simply - they burned the faucet with an alcohol torch, from which water flows, the analysis - the indicators are normal. No one got diarrhea.
