A significant spill of oil and acid occurred in a water reclamation room during the relocation of a 55-gallon drum.  Due to the confined space, the 30-gallon mixture required urgent acid and oil spill cleanup.



HazChem deployed an Emergency Rapid Response Team in less than 60 minutes. The situation was analyzed, a remediation plan was formed, and the following actions were taken:

PH paper test for spill clean up

PH paper was utilized to test the affected area, and sodium bicarbonate was used to neutralize the acid in the spill.

oil dry for absorption of spilled oil

Oil dry was deployed into the affected area for absorption of the spilled oil.

absorbent pads to clean oil spill

The crew used absorbent pads to clean the oil residue in hard-to-reach areas of the room.

impacted oil dry for oil spill in drum

The impacted oil dry was scooped up and placed into one 55-gallon open top poly drum.

55 gallon drum of oil dry waste for disposal

The spill generated one 55-gallon drum to be disposed of as waste. It was properly sealed, labelled, and kept on-site.
