Contaminated Soil From Caustic Acid Spill Removed From Berlin Park
BERLIN – Contaminated soil has been removed from Berlin Falls Park following a chemical spill last week.
A small section of Berlin Falls Park remains fenced-off this week in the wake of a spill of what is believed to be caustic acid. Mayor Gee Williams issued a statement acknowledging the incident this week.
“A chemical spill was located adjacent to two ponds in Berlin Falls Park on Wednesday, June 27,” Williams said. “The Town of Berlin immediately contacted hazardous materials crews who were in the park Wednesday evening to begin cleaning up the spill. Chesapeake Environmental Services (CES) completed the clean-up of the impacted area by early Friday evening.”
Williams said the town had contacted the Maryland Department of the Environment as well.
