TRENTON, N.Y. — Crews look into what caused a chemical spill at the Mohawk Valley Water Authority in Trenton.

The Executive Director says there was a hazmat situation at the site yesterday afternoon, after a large amount of hydrofluorosilicic acid leaked.

According to the EPA, the chemical is used as fluoride in drinking water.

We’re told the drinking water is safe, and there is no threat to the public or employees.

Crews cleaned up the spill and got the situation under control last night.
