Substance in Ohio creek identified by HAZMAT

CANFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – Monday a suspicious substance was found in a creek near Canfield High School.

Hazmat arrived on scene to find a white substance in the creek.

Hazmat tested the water and said it is diluted acid and is no environmental threat or safety hazard at this time.

The deputy chief said this particular pipe that the substance is coming from is not on the map, so they are having a hard time finding where the substance is coming from.

“That’s our next move, EAP is going to assist us with that. To start checking businesses to see where it’s coming from,” said Canfield Deputy Chief Matt Rarick.

The Environmental Protection Agency has taken over the case to further investigate.
