Don't cry over spilled milk, just sprinkle lime on it like they did in Pennsylvania. A few thousand gallons spilled when a truck overturned near York Springs and about 3,000 gallons went into a creek. Crews sprinkled lime to prevent the milk from curdling, which could cause a horrendous smell and attract flies. Environmental vacuum trucks sucked about 90 percent of the milk and concerns then turned to milk that had seeped into the soil. Putting lime in the soil chews up the milk's fat and neutralizes the odor.
