A PNNL staff member, working one evening in the Treatment, Storage, and Disposal (TSD) facility, heard a noise in the area where hazardous wastes are stored. Upon investigation, he discovered two 55-gallon drums of hazardous substances that had ruptured. Two drums (repackaged that day) had burst and were laying on their sides. Their entire contents (approximately 100 gallons of phosphoric acid)were spilled onto the floor but were contained within the floor blind drains.
