Hazmat crew clears spilled pool chemicals, intersection reopens


Pool chemicals that spilled onto a Vacaville intersection Monday morning were cleaned up and all streets were reopened around noon, according to police.

Vacaville police tweeted about the spill at 9:19 a.m. Monday, writing that the intersection in the area of Peabody Road and Alamo Drive was closed.

Four one-gallon containers of muriatic acid, commonly used in pools, had spilled onto the streets in the intersection, Officer Chris Lechuga said.

Hazardous materials crews worked at the scene until it was safe, then the intersection reopened, Lechuga said.

Public works crews remained in the area Monday afternoon cleaning one turn pocket that had not been declared safe but was not affecting traffic, Lechuga said.
