USA Fluoride leak contained in Marysville

fluoride2Emergency crews have contained a fluoride leak at the Marysville Water Filtration Plant, 1535 River Road. Marysville Public Safety Chief Tom Konik said an environmental contractor will finish cleanup at the plant.
Rescue crews responded the the plant about 10:15 a.m. for reports of a flouride leak.

Konik said fluoride had leaked from a tank at the plant. Some of the acid traveled from the south side of the building into a drain and from there into the St. Clair River. The leak did not affect the city drinking water.

Officials closed Chrysler Beach, just south of the plant, as a precaution shortly after the leak was discovered. Konik said water at Chrysler Beach was tested and no health hazards were identified.
He said the beach previously had been closed by the St. Clair County Health Department for high E. coli levels and likely would remain so.

The tank that leaked contained about 1,400 gallons. Konik said the environmental cleanup contractor should be able to ascertain how much of that 1,400 gallons leaked.

Bari Wrubel, supervisor for the Marysville water and waste water treatment plants, said the leak is believed to have been caused by a failure on one of the lines on the tank.
