Asahi highlighted an announcement made by the Okinawa prefectural government on Tuesday regarding the detection of PFOS toxic chemical agents in water samples collected in June at the U.S. military oil storage facility in Uruma, saying that the level was almost 1,600 times higher than the permissible standard set by the GOJ. The release of the results of the water analysis was reportedly delayed by several months because the U.S. and Japanese governments did not give their consent.
