For spills that are contained on land, responders may use mechanical and/or
Chemical/ biological methods they determine necessary when an emergency involves fire or imminent threats to human health. There is no specific law in Wisconsin that addresses the use of these types of products. However, the department urges caution in the use of chemical and/or biological agents as these materials are considered hazardous substances if allowed to enter the waters of the state (including storm sewers). Any chemical or biological agent used must be contained and collected along with the spilled material for proper disposal.
Mechanical methods, including booms, absorbents, and physical barriers are the most frequently used response tools for clean up and containment of spills on land. Containment of the spill to prevent it from reaching the water is typically the most effective action to reduce the spread of contamination and minimize overall threats to the environment.
