Hazmat teams respond to sulfuric acid leak in Paso Robles vineyard 

The San Luis Obispo County Regional Hazmat Team responded to a sulfuric acid leak from a “irrigation-type tank” in Paso Robles on Thursday morning at around 9:30 a.m., according to reports.

About 1,500 gallons of sulfuric acid leaked out of the tank, which was in the middle of vineyards with dirt road access in the 6900 block of Estrella Road near Airport Road, according to Cal Fire and a report by the Tribune.

The tank was “out in the middle of vineyards with dirt road access,” Orozco said. No evacuations were ordered and no one was injured.

The spill was reportedly contained by 12:15 p.m.

No further information is available at this time.
