Foul Odor in Santa Fe Springs
Posted On: July 30, 2013
The Whittier Police Department has received several calls regarding a foul odor in the area of Bloomfield Avenue and Florence Avenue in the City of Santa Fe Springs. The odor is being emitted from a leaking storage tank which is located on the property of a closed business. The Santa Fe Springs Fire Department and the Environmental Health Hazmat Team were notified and asked to assess the situation. They have determined that the odor is non-toxic and that it does not pose a threat to the health of our community. However, we were advised that the odor could potentially remain for several days until the area can be cleaned thoroughly.
If anyone feels they are experiencing any health related issues or side effects related to this incident, you are encouraged to call 911 or seek medical attention immediately.
For further information or concerns, please contact Community Relations Officer Brad White at 562-567-9208.
