A chemical spill in the parking lot of the Tipp City, OH, water treatment plant will not threaten the water supply for the city’s customers, officials said.
A drum of Fluoroacetic acid, which totaled 300 gallons, was spilled in the rear parking lot of the facility. The acid is used during the water treatment process, said Assistant Fire Chief Ron Haley.
“With the wind we have now it’s not too dangerous,” Haley said.
The water department was able to dam the drains to ensure the chemical did not get into the water supply.
Miami County HAZMAT remained on the scene around 12:15 p.m. and a cleaning company is responding to assist with cleaning up the chemical.
There were no injuries during the incident.
