Chemical spilled on road

By From page A3 | April 03, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Solano County under the state’s Proposition 65 reported a release of sodium silicate used to cure concrete.

The release happened Monday along Lopes Road near the Marshview exit. The sodium silicate came from 10 five-gallon pails. The driver of the vehicle transporting the pails used absorbent materials to contain the spill and a waste contractor decontaminated the area, a county report said.

The spill posed a “low risk” to the air and groundwater, according to the report, which was released Wednesday.
