    Yeah brain fart, it had ALOT of H2S in it. We called it stink water I think the well called NASH if I remember correctly. We hauled Caustic soda into the gas wells in Rosebush Michigan. They added the caustic soda to the “sour” crude and the by product was “sweet” crude and the NASH or stinkwater. We’d load the stinkwater , it wasn’t a 1:1 ratio to the incoming Caustic Soda I think it was 1 tanker of stinkwater created for every 4 or 5 caustic soda inbound. We hauled the stinkwater into a Univar facility over by Cleveland Ohio . The Caustic got loaded out of KA Steel facility on the Chicago canal southwest of Chiraq proper. Univar wouldn’t let us unload till after normal business hours because office staff and warehouse complained of the stench

    We still haul these. But 10 years ago I would have had to get suited up a lot on unloading. Anymore, we just sit in the truck or break room and the consignee does it all. I'm getting a load of formaldehyde off as I type this.

    I started to see that trend as I got out of liquid bulk. I didn’t have a problem with it. Same with using their air, pump or hoses
