Chemical spill cleaned at Escanaba Walmart

A small spill of polyphosphorous acid in the northeast portion of the Walmart parking lot has been cleaned up.

The Escanaba Department of Public Safety discovered the the chemical spill earlier this morning and stood by while U.P. Environmental conducted small scale clean-up operations. A leaking container within a dry box on a semi-truck was found to be the source of the spill following an investigation. The carrier’s destination was a local business within the City of Gladstone.
