Hazmat Team called by Bainbridge Twp FD to a report of a muriatic acid spill on the
midway of a large amusement park with a vapor cloud and one injured employee.
On arrival, hazmat team members found a 330 gallon tote of muriatic acid had fallen
off a forklift truck and spilled about 230 gallons of acid on the midway. A large
white vapor cloud was issuing from the spill.
Level B entry teams blocked storm drains to reduce the outfall to a nearby lake,
uprighted the tote and began neutralizing the acid remaining on the ground. Initial
pH levels were 0-1.
A cleanup contractor responded to pressure wash the concrete, collect and pickup
all the contaminated water and to transport it off site for treatment.
