Fertilizer leaks into Volo storm drain

Source:, May 18, 2019
A faulty container was being blamed for a chemical spill Saturday morning that leaked about 200 gallons of liquid fertilizer into a storm drain in suburban Volo, officials said.
Lake County sheriff’s deputies were sent to North Cornerstone and Remington drives at about 10:10 a.m. Police said in a prepared statement they located a TruGreen Fertilizer Truck that had leaked the substance.
Fire Department and hazardous materials crews from Fox Lake arrived at the scene, and eventually determined the fertilizer leak did not pose an immediate threat to people living in the area.
The HazMat crews did, however, dam up the storm drains to prevent fertilizer from flowing further into the area drainage system.

Environmental cleanup groups responded to the incident scene for additional clean-up and decontamination work, while officials with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the Lake County Health Department and the village of Volo all have been notified of the situation.
Village officials referred all questions to the sheriff’s department.
