The eastbound lanes of the Courtney Campbell Causeway reopened Thursday morning after a chlorine solution spill.
The lanes were closed for about 2.5 hours.
According to Clearwater officials, a driver noticed a Triangle Pool Service truck leaking a chlorine solution. The truck pulled off the right shoulder of the road, then moved to the inside lane to be further away from the water and make it easier to off-load the remaining liquid, which was described as the roughly 10-15 percent chlorine solution that's typically found in swimming pools.
An estimated 150 gallons of the total 450 gallons in the one leaking tank spilled onto the ground. The remaining liquid was transferred by buckets and barrels into another pool supply truck.
The City of Clearwater estimated 10-15 gallons of the product made it into Old Tampa Bay, leading the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to be dispatched to handle any potential environmental hazards.
Clearwater Fire Rescue crews and the Clearwater Police Department also responded to the scene.
There were no reported injuries.
