Among the details of the planned cleanup, the company said the tank containing the chemical solvent was taken out of service. Also, it plans to drain all of the mixing tanks and have an engineer inspect each one. Washington Engineering and Architecture will evaluate the design of the mixing room and determine the reason the containment failed, the statement said.
Apollo Technologies said it has hired the Environmental International Corporation to monitor the air quality in the area, take water samples from the creek and collect any identified waste.
PLZ Aeroscience, the parent company of Apollo Technologies, bought the nearly 40-year-old plant last December, Channel 2 Action News reported.
