Product/ Quantity
Unknown quantity of Class A fire-fighting foam used by the Anchorage Fire Department as a fire suppressant. There are two components of potential concern that make up the fire-fighting foam – diethylene glycol monobutyl ether, and ethanol. These two components make up a very minor percentage of the foam.
The Anchorage Fire Department was conducting a training exercise with the Class A fire-fighting foam at the Ben Boeke parking lot next to a storm drain. A portion of the foam migrated into a storm drain that feeds into Chester Creek.
