DEEP Emergency Crews Clean Spilled Acid in New Haven

Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) crews responded to an acid spill in New Haven on Thursday, the agency said. 

DEEP said its emergency team went to contain and clean acid that had spilled from a broken container in a basement storage area at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station on Huntington Street. 

Remains from the incident have been given to an environmental contractor proper disposal and the scene has been cleared, DEEP said. 

The building was evacuated during the clean up and air quality tests. The immediate area where the acid spilled was closed off to let it air out, DEEP said. 

There were no injuries reported.
