Vandals Damage Chemical Tank Valve

Acknowledgement to Great American

Over the weekend vandals climbed the fence at a chemical distribution facility. Besides breaking a few windows; they also damaged a valve on a 10,000 gallon tank of chemicals. The damaged valve leaked until Monday morning when it was discovered by facility employees. While most of the contents of the tank just needed to be removed and disposed of from the containment area, local environmental officials required subsurface testing of soils and groundwater so that total costs reached $90,000.
