First Call Environmental was requested to assist with a tractor trailer that has crashed and exited the roadway into the woods. A breach of the saddle tanks had caused a large fuel release into the soil. The trailer had contained numerous small containers of milk. While attempting to remove the trailer from the woods, the roof of the trailer split releasing a substantial release of milk into the soil that had already been saturated with diesel fuel.
First Call Environmental worked to prevent the fuel/milk mixture from migration from the impact area. A vacuum truck was utilized to recover an estimated 800 gallons of the mixture that had accumulated on the site. Upon removal of all free liquids, the site was secured and a remediation of impacted soil was scheduled. First Call Environmental returned and performed a soil remediation with the proper laboratory analysis of post excavation areas to confirm the site was clean. The project was then closed out. From a fast and effective response to the proper remediation and State accepted soil sampling techniques, First Call Environmental should be your only call when an emergency arises. 800-626-1290.
