Chemical spill cleaned up at Inkster Industrial Park
Hazardous materials crews in Winnipeg have finished cleaning up a chemical spill in the Inkster Industrial Park this afternoon.
Emergency personnel were called to Smooth Freight on Milner Street shortly after 2 p.m. CT Tuesday, after a forklift punctured a container full of a cleaning chemical.
A City of Winnipeg spokesperson told CBC News that about 662 litres (175 gallons) of sodium bisulfate leaked onto the ground, but it was soaked up with sawdust.
No one was injured in the incident, and none of the chemical reached any nearby sewers.
