Cleanup Methods

Environmental considerations. Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. /SRP: If time permits, pits, ponds, lagoons, soak holes, or holding areas should be sealed with an impermeable flexible membrane liner./ Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash or cement powder.
Environmental considerations. Water spill: Use natural deep water pockets, excavated lagoons or sand bag barriers to trap material at bottom. Remove trapped material with suction hoses. Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Environmental considerations. Air spill: Apply water spray or mist to knock down vapors.
