Listener Feedback:

Hi guys, so today we responded to an ammonia call in a neighboring city. The company was off loading liquid ammonia from a commercial ice maker and running the product out of the tank and into a 55 gallon drum with a garden hose of running water. Someone called because they smelled ammonia. There was no active leak, just a drum of ammonia/water and runoff going down a sewer drain. Upon arrival we had a frost line on the tank and a strong smell of ammonia. I would love to know what would be your course of action on this call.
