Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A portion of Nellis Boulevard is shut down because of a spill.
It happened around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning between Bonanza Road and Harris Avenue.
A Water Reclamation truck, full of bio-solids from their plant, was on its way to Apex when the back door opened and the load was spilled as the truck traveled down the road.
It appeared the bio-solids were about an inch thick on the road.
Crews from the Nevada DOT, Clark County Reclamation District, Public Works, the Health District, Metro and Highway Patrol were all out there cleaning up.
That portion of Nellis is expected to reopen around 7 p.m. Wednesday evening.
The Water Reclamation District stressed the bio-solids are not toxic, nor hazardous, to anyone.
If you were driving in the area and got some on your car, you can wash it off with a little soap and water, because it's not toxic or harmful.
