Hazmat spill reported in Santa Fe Springs

SANTA FE SPRINGS — A hazardous materials clean-up crew responded to the corner of Alondra Boulevard and Carmenita Road after several gallons of contaminated water spilled at a metal processing company.
There appeared to be no public health risk, and no injuries were reported in connection with the spill of several gallons of aluminum sulfate solution, which took place shortly after 7 a.m. at Heraeus Metal Processing Inc., 13429 Alondra Blvd., Santa Fe Springs Fire Department clerk Barbara Chapman said.
Firefighters cordoned off the area and worked to prevent the chemical from seeping into storm drains as a company contractor cleaned up the spill, she said.
Neighboring businesses were not evacuated due to the spill, Chapman said.
