Clean up to resume Monday at site of Laurel chemical spill

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Clean-up will continue Monday morning at the site of a chemical spill which happened Friday night at a business on the Laurel Industrial Parkway.

Crews from a Jackson-based environmental services company temporarily suspended operations Saturday at around 4 p.m., after spending several hours cleaning up more than 5,000 gallons of hydrochloric acid, which leaked from a container at Baker Hughes.

Jones County Emergency Management officials said there is no off-site contamination and no threat to the public.

They also said the company, which provides oil field services, will re-open for business Monday morning.
