Third time mercury found in Antioch neighborhood

Published Tuesday March 14

ANTIOCH – The Contra Costa Organization Department discovered mercury in one Antioch neighborhood on Monday.

The 2200 block of Manzanita Way between Sycamore Dr. and Mahogany Way is closed off.

A resident noticed the mercury spill around ten in the morning and called the police and health department.

Roughly 6 contamination sites were reported in the area around that time.

Unsafe materials crews decontaminated the sidewalks but the biggest concern is the street, according to an official from Contra Costa Hazmat and Materials.

Crews are binding the mercury with sulfur and vacuuming it up.

Then on Jan. 22, officials were called to the area again for another discovery on Mandarin Way.
