that place has gone downhill in the last 5 years. Even worse since the takeover.

I did some work there last year for a month. Talked to the workers I know there. They say it is bad. They cut the security force to like a couple of guards. I've worked there as a contractor from 2000-2004 alot. Now we don't do anything there.

If the "employees halted the leak w/in minutes", why were 89 pounds (not gallons ?)reported?? Also, were the employees trained in hazardous waste/acid spill cleanups??? Scary stuff. The local Fire Department should have an Inventory List of all of the chemicals stored there, as part of it's HazMat Safety Procedure.

sorry tonya, but we were not at all notified in a timely manner, and as far as being lucky to have a business that puts safety second to profits and continues to undereport accidents to the public, you need to open your eyes on that one!!
