The spill was the result of a crash involving a trailer pulling pool equipment, The crash occurred at around 4:45 p.m.
Few details are available at the moment, but by 5:10 p.m., westbound traffic was flowing again on SR100. Eastbound traffic was still closed. A sheriff’s office spokesman said the crash itself was minor, involving a pick-up truck, but caution was in play because of the chlorine, which Palm Coast and Flagler Beach fire departments, along with Flagler County Fire Rescue, were cleaning up.

NEVER intall a ground rod at a pool.2008-06-15 06:19:24 by Wolf-boy
The purpose of bonding, is very different from the purpose of grounding.
Your pool equipment is already grounded by the circuit that it's connected to.
Bonding the equipment is done to ensure that all exposed metal parts of the pool, and of the pool equipment are at the same potential to each other. Because it's possible, that due to static, that one metal part might have a different potential than another, even though they're both touching, or in the dirt, because the soil isn't a great conductor by itself.
An in ground pool gets the re-bar, in at least three points, and any metal parts within ten feet of the pool bonded, using a solid #8 copper wire
