Sodium Hydroxide Release Cleanup

Sodium Hydroxide Release Cleanup

FCE was called to respond to sodium hydroxide release that occurred three days prior. Contamination was visible upon the trailer floor, ground beneath the trailer and a nearby drain. Product had hardened on the asphalt. FCE donned proper PPE, setup a decontamination station, and worked to neutralize the released product using a citric acid solution. FCE located the leaking tote and noted a malfunctioning valve. The valve prevented FCE from being able to conduct a typical tote transfer. The tote was breached from the top and the product transferred into a replacement tote.
