Chemical spill kills wildlife in Vienna pond

Vienna chemical spill kills fish

VIENNA, Ohio (WKBN) – A chemical spill cleanup is taking place in Trumbull County.

WKBN got a tip in the newsroom around 8 p.m. Thursday about a spill at 884 Sodom Hutchings Road near old Route 82 (Warren Sharon Road). When our news crew went out to investigate, there were crews from Kleese Development Associates cleaning up some type of a spill in a wetlands area near one of their fracking wells.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is overseeing the cleanup.

The chemical did seep into a nearby pond and killed the wildlife, which included fish and turtles. The owner of that pond said he noticed the dead fish on Monday and called the Ohio EPA.

The ODNR came to the site on Thursday.
