Sludge spill contaminates Illinois river
February 9, 2009
The Des Plaines River was temporarily closed after a 65,000-gallon spill from an oil-sludge holding tank
at a plant in Joliet. Only about 6,000 gallons
of the sludge appear to have reached the river, but some wildlife were lost to the spill.
We can help you with products for emergency spill control, including portable spill-containment berms
and emergency baffling systems
to control the spread of oil and other pollutants in water. Please feel free to contact us
