Incident Description
On August 27, 2021, at around 11 AM, Lehigh Cement Company South LLC "Lehigh" experienced an unexpected leak at the bottom of one of the Silos at our Cape Canaveral Facility located at 9012 Marlin Street in Cape Canaveral, Florida [Air Permit No. 0090057-007-AO]. Approximately 125 tons of Slag from the Silo spilled onto the ground. Facility Personnel responded immediately to this spill by safely containing the source of the spill by making temporary repairs and wetting down the spilled material stockpile on the ground. We plan to vacuum up the spill and reprocess it through the plant in a controlled fashion. The NRC Spill Report was also made and the report number is 1314932.
