The Countermeasure Wash Down System on the USS Ronald Reagan

Interesting photo showing the washing countermeasure system that cleans the ship of bio or nuclear attack.

PACIFIC OCEAN (Nov. 24, 2008) Countermeasure wash down sprinklers are activated after a flight deck scrub exercise as the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) transits the Pacific Ocean. The Countermeasure Wash Down System Is For Washing Down After A Nuclear Or Biological Attack.

Ronald Reagan is on a scheduled deployment in the U.S. 3rd Fleet area of responsibility. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Joseph M. Buliavac/Released)

This is probably the system they are using at present, as the USS Ronald Reagan is stationed off the coast of Japan after the earthquake and nuclear power station meltdowns.
