Multiple Agencies Respond to HCL Acid SpillFeatured Stories, News Friday, March 15th, 2013
Highway 21 near Coulter Airfield in Bryan was restricted to one lane of traffic in each direction Friday afternoon due to a spill of hydrochloric acid.
William Bouse of the Bryan Fire Department says the spill was in a containment pond at an oilfield services business on Crosswinds Drive north of 21.
Also responding to the incident was the College Station Fire Department, precincts 2 and 3, and the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office.
Bouse says a reverse 911 call was made to phone numbers within a half-mile of the spill to notify residents and businesspeople of what happened.
A private company conducted the cleanup of the acid, which was in a containment area of the business. Sources say 200 gallons was spilled.
Bouse says the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality will lead the investigation into the incident.
