Crews Take Care of a Toxic Chemical Leak in Great Falls

Posted: Updated:
A suspected chemical leak near Hickory Swing Golf Course was reported earlier this afternoon, after BNFS employees smelt an unusual odor from an empty tank car. HAZMAT crews were dispatched to the scene, nearby residents were notified and the area was blocked off as a safety precaution. After further investigation, their readings did indicate there was in fact a leak. The chemical being released was sodium hydro-sulfide, a toxic liquid used for paper and dye production. Crews have since mitigated the leak and notified the owner that the tank car needs repair.
