Crews clean up chemical leak of more than 8,000 gallons from South Brunswick facility
(12/12/04) SOUTH BRUNSWICK - More than 8,000 gallons of chemicals leaked from the John C. Dolph Chemical Company on New Street in the Monmouth Junction section of South Brunswick on Sunday.
Hazardous material crews were working most of the day to clean up the chemicals, Xylene and Naptha, on the road and in the Lawrence Brook. They say the chemicals are used as resin in electrical equipment.
The crews have run air quality tests, and the results show no risk to people. Those near the spill say they can definitely detect the chemicals, which smell like spray paint.
Police in Middlesex County are investigating the incident and are still trying to determine the cause of the spill.
