I COMMENTED THAT I SMELLED AN ELECTRICAL BURN ODOR. (FRANK DOUGLAS WAS IN THE KITCHEN ALSO). FRANK DOUGLAS WALKED OVER TO THE LIGHT FIXTURE, AND POINTED OUT BLACK STAINS COVERING THE INSIDE OF THE FIXTURES PLASTIC LIGHT COVERING. BRIAN MCVICKER PUT ON RUBBER GLOVES AND REMOVED THE COVERING, EXPOSING THE BURNT BALLAST. AT THIS TIME, A LIGHT SMOKE DRIFTED FROM THE FIXTURE. I MISTAKENLY INHALED SOME OF THE LIGHT SMOKE/VAPOR. MR MCVICKER APPEARED TO HAVE INHALED SMOKE/VAPOR AS I DID. AT THIS POINT I LEFT THE ROOM AND INFORMED LT DOUGLAS OF THE SITUATION.

ON THE SIDE OF THE BARREL WAS A YELLOW PLACARD PRINTED WITH THE WORD "OXIDIZER." I THEN TOOK MY HAZ-MAT BOOK & FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS. I FLOODED THE AREA WITH 200 GALLONS OF WATER BEFORE I PLACED THE BARREL IN AN UP RIGHT POSITION. THE BARREL STILL CONTAINED APPROXIMAELY 3 TO 4 GALLONS OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. I INFORMED THE RESIDENTS TO AVOID THE AREA UNTIL I CHECKED IT OUT FURTHER. NOVEMBER 9, 1988, I CONTACTED DEQ AND TALKED TO JOHN BECKER, WHO TOLD ME HE WOULD CALL PORTLAND AND GET BACK TO ME. APPROX. 2 HRS LATER JOHN RETURNED THE CALL TO INFORM ME THAT WE HAD DONE THE CORRECT THING. THE WAY TO DISPOSE OF THE REMAINING CONTENTS OF THE BARREL WAS TO DILUTE & PUT ON THE GROUND, THEN FLOOD THE AREA AGAIN.

THEIR OBJECTIVE TO STOP THE LEAK USING THE A KIT WAS UNSUCCESSFUL, BUT THEY WERE ABLE TO SLOW THE LEAK TO THE POINT THAT THE AREA WAS MORE SECURE. TWO REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE PENWALT CORP, WHICH DEALS WITH CHLORINE LEAKS, ARRIVED ON SCENE AT 1620 HRS AND REMOVED BOTTLE FROM BLDG. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT BOTTLE COULD BE REMOVED SAFELY FROM CORE AREA OF CITY TO ISOLATED AREA OF EAST END MOORING BASIN FOR FUTHER ATTEMPT TO CONTAIN LEAK. THE TEAM FROM PENWALT REMOVED THE A KIT PATCH FROM THE CYLINDER AND WERE SUCCESSFUL IN TURNING OFF THE VALVE TO STOP THE LEAK. ANTOHER LEAK WAS FOUND IN THE SIDE OF FYLINDER APPOX ONE FOOT FROM THE BOTTOM AND WAS PATCHED USING CLAMP FROM A KIT. SECOND LEAK WAS CAUSED FROM CORROSION OF THE METAL DUE TO THE LEAKING VALVE. IT APPEARED THAT VALVE HAD BEEN LEAKING FOR SEVERAL WEEKS JUDGING FROM THE CONDITION OF THE CYLINGER AND THE INTERIOR OF THE STORAGE ROOM. PENWALT TEAM MEMBERS LOADED PATCHED CYLINDER INTO THEIR VEHICLE AND TOOK IT BACK TO PORTLAND WITH THEM. THEY ALSO ADVISED OWNER OF L & C CHRISTIAN ACADEMY OF THE METHOD FOR CLEAN UP OF THE CONTAMINATED ROOM AND WHO TO CALL FOR REMOVAL OF THE THREE OTHER CYLINDERS IN STORAGE.

HE DID NOT TELL ANYONE TO NOTIFY 911, OR THE ATTENDANT OF THE SPILL. LATER THE STATION MANAGERS GIRLFRIEND STOPPED BY TO BUY SOME MILK & WAS TOLD ABOUT THE SPILL & WENT HOME TO TELL HIM ABOUT IT. HE WENT TO THE STATION TO SEE ABOUT IT & NOTIFIED THE FIRE DEPT ABOUT THE SPILL. WHEN THE FIRE DEPT ARRIVED ON THE SCENE WE SHUT DOWN THE STATION & BLOCKED OFF THE PARKING LOT TO ANY TRAFFIC. WE THEN CALLED THE COUNTY ROAD DEPT TO SEE IF WE COULD GET SOME SAND TO SPREAD OVER THE FUEL TO CONTAIN IT TO THE PARKING LOT. IT HAD BEEN RAINING QUITE HEAVILY AND WE HOPED TO CONTAIN THE SPILL TO THE LOT FOR FEAR IT MIGHT MAKE IT TO THE DRAINAGE DITCH OR THE CREEK. IN THE MORNING, THE COUNTY ROAD DEPT BROUGHT BY SOME ABSORBANT BLANKETS TO PICK UP THE REST OF THE SPILL. THE STATION WAS RE-OPENED AT THIS TIME.

WE RESPONDED TO THE SCENE AND LOCATED THE SOURCE APPROXIMATELY 15 MINUTES LATER. WE HAD BENTON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE INVOLVED IN THE INVESTIGATION. WE PUT IN DIKES, UNDERFLOW DAMS, PADS AND BOOMS TO STOP THE FLOW BEFORE THE FUEL REACHED THE RIVER. UNFORTUNATELY, MOST OF THE SPILL HAD ALREADY GONE THROUGH THIS AREA. ON THE ADVISE OF DEQ, PETER FISHER, HE DETERMINED THAT THE SMALL AMOUNT OF THE SPILL AND THE DISTANCE THAT IT HAD ALREADY TRAVELED, THAT A BOOM ACROSS MARY'S RIVER WAS NOT NECESSARY. WE FOUND A LIGHT FILM OF OIL 2 MILES FROM THE SITE ON MARY'S RIVER AT 1230. NEXT DAY, I ADVISED DEQ THAT MOST OF THE SPILL WAS ALREADY DOWNSTREAM AND THE WATER IS MUDDY AND HIGH. THAT PADS AND BOOMS HAVE PICKED UP MOST OF THE REMAINING SPILL. THE NOZZLE ON THE TANK HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE COMPANY IS ENFORCING A NEW POLICY ON SPILLS AND EARLY NOTIFICATION. HAZMAT SPILL SUPPLIES WILL BE KEPT ON HAND AT THE COMPANY WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE THEM.

AN EMPLOYEE WORKING IN THE METALLUGIC LAB ADDED ACID TO A MIXTURE OF 90% ETHANOL/10% NITRIC ACID, THEN CAPPED THE 500 CC PLASTIC CONTAINER TIGHTLY, PLACING IT BACK ON THE CHEMICAL STORAGE SHELF. THE ADDED ACID ALLEGEDLY CAUSED AN EXOTHERMIC REACTION, BUILDING PRESSURE UNTIL THE CONTAINER BLEVE'D, THROWING PRODUCT & CONTAINER PIECES 20' ACROSS THE ROOM. THE RELEASE OF PRODUCT ALSO CAUSED CHEMICAL DETERIORATION TO THE SHELVING MATERIAL OF THE STORAGE RACKS. THE BLEVE KNOCKED OVER SEVERAL OTHER CHEMICAL CONTAINERS ON THE SHELF, CAUSING ANOTHER 500 CC PLASTIC BOTTLE OF 5% HYDRO-FLOURIC/30% NITRIC/65% H2O TO SHATTER ON THE FLOOR & RELEASE ITS PRODUCT. THE EMPLOYEE SUFFERED A SMALL ACID BURN ON ONE HAND, WAS TAKEN TO ST. VINCENT HOSPITAL BY POV BEFORE FIRE & RESCUE ARRIVED. FIREFIGHTERS USED LEVEL IV PROTECTION TO ENTER & REMOVE THE CONTAINERS; THE PRODUCT HAD EVAPORATED. SMOKE EJECTORS WERE THEN USED TO POSITIVELY PRESSURIZE THE BUILDING & VENTILATE THE AREA.

CITIZEN REPORTED SEEING TWO CYLINDERS FALL OVER ON THE LOADING DOACK OF LANDEEN WELDING. HE HEARD A VENTING NOISE FROM ONE OF THE CYLINDERS. THE TYPE OF PRODUCT WAS UNKNOWN. LANDEEN WELDING IS A FIXED SITE FACILITY THAT REFILLS COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDERS. FIREFIGHTERS EXAMINED THE LOADING DOCK AREA FROM OUTSIDE THE FENCED COMPOUND WITH BINOCULARS. CYLINDER #1 WAS GREEN IN COLOR, AND MARKED AS OXYGEN. CYLINDER #2 WAS YELLOW IN COLOR AND MARKED AS COMPRESSED AIR. WE DID NOT OBSERVE ANY VENTING OR ODOR FROM THE AREA. THE LOADING DOCK AREA CONTAINED AT LEAST 100 CYLINDERS. BUSINESS OWNER BILL LEWIS WAS SUMMONED TO THE SCENE. HE ARRIVED IN FIVE MINUTES. HE STATED THAT DURING THE HOT WEATHER, ONLY NON FLAMMABLE CASES ARE STORED IN THIS AREA, AN AREA EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT ALL DAY. HE FURTHER STATED THAT IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR A TANK TO RUPTURE ITS FUSIBLE LINK IN HIGH TEMPS. THE FORCE OF THE FUSIBLE LINK FAILING, IS ENOUGH TO CAUSE A CYLINDER TO FALL OVER. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE COMPRESSED AIR TANK VENTED, KNOCKING OVER THE OXYGEN TANK ALSO.

INCIDENT 1290-92 HAZ-MAT INCIDENT 46151 SW PLUMLEE RD ON DECEMBER 1, 1992, WE RESPONDED TO 46151 SW PLUMLEE ROAD, MRS. MARJORIE SNYDER'S RESIDENCE, FOR A REPORTED LEAK OF FURNACE OIL IN THE HOME. UPON OUR ARRIVAL, THE ASSESSMENT OF THE SITUATION WAS THAT THERE WAS OIL INSIDE THE HOME, COVERING ABOUT 2/3 OF THE FAMILY ROOM FLOOR, WHICH WAS COVERED WITH TILE OVER CONCRETE. THE FLOOR WAS GRADED TO THE SOUTH, & MOST OF THE OIL HAD SEEPED UNDER THE THRESHOLD OF THE PATIO TYPE DOOR, TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOME & INTO THE GROUND/LAWN AREA. THE SITUATION WAS IN NEED OF VENTILATION TO KEEP THE FUMES FROM ENTERING THE HOME, & A BOX STYLE FAN WAS PLACED IN THE KITCHEN DOORWAY TO BLOW THE FUMES OUT OF THE PATIO DOOR OF THE ROOM INVOLVED. FURTHER, THE SITUATION WAS DETERMINED TO BE IN NEED OF PREVENTING MORE DAMAGE TO THE STRUCTURE & THE CONTENTS, & MANY AFFECTED ITEMS WERE TAKEN TO AN OUTSIDE COVERED AREA FOR STORAGE. NEXT WITH THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK ALREADY BEING SECURED PRIOR TO OUR ARRIVAL, THE YARD AREA OUTSIDE THE HOME WAS FLAGGED TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM TRACKING THE OIL & TO IDENTIFY WHERE THE OIL HAD POSSIBLEY GONE, AS IT WAS BOTH DARK & RAIN WAS FALLING HEAVILY. CLEANUP WAS ATTEMPTED OF THE REMAINING OIL, & MRS. SNYDER WAS ADVISED TO CONTACT HER INSURANCE AGENT, WHICH WAS MR. PHIL FECHTER OF STATE FARM. MR. FECHTER ADVISED MRS. SNYDER TO CALL SERVICE MASTER OF HILLSBORO FOR THE CLEAN UP, & SERVICE MASTER ADVISED THAT THEY COULD CLEAN UP THE MATERIAL UPON THEIR ARRIVAL. MRS. SNYDER WAS ADVISED OF THE ENTIRE SITUATION & THAT THE LAWN AREA WAS FLAGGED FOR FURTHER ACTION, DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF THE SPILL, & THAT WE WOULD RETURN ON DECEMBER 2, TO SEE THE SCENE IN THE DAYLIGHT. UPON ARRIVAL OF SERVICE MASTER, WE DISCUSSED THE SITUATION WITH THEM & RETURNED TO QUARTERS.
