Chattanooga Fire Department Hazmat crews responded to a fuel leak in the 300 block of MLK Boulevard on Monday, August 14th 2017.
The spill was from diesel fuel leaked by a Waste Connections truck. Waste Connections is the company that provides trash services for the local college, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
There were no injuries and while there is no clear estimate on the amount of fuel that spilled, Clean Sweep, Inc. and Highway Environmental Response teams were called in to perform the clean up in a safe and responsible method.
The two companies have years of experience in Environmental clean up and responses. The spill was cleaned completely and the area was returned to a safe condition by Monday evening.
When it comes to world class service on a local level, Clean Sweep was an obvious first call. Their assistance was crucial in the efforts to reopen the UTC MAPP Building Parking Lot and reduce overall impact to Faculty and Students.
