UC MercedÕs science and engineering building was closed for a few hours on Monday night after a chemical spill. The spill happened at the buildingÕs penthouse, which is right above the third-floor, and houses mechanical machines that help operate the building. The spill leaked to a lab on the third-floor.

The spill involved anywhere from 10 to 15 gallons of water treatment chemicals used in industrial and large buildings to prevent mineral build-up in pipes.
