Two Rivers, WI: Cause of Chlorine Leak at Water Plant Undetermined: Nearby Buildings Evacuated
4/1/2000- 9:45 AM
Nearby buildings were evacuated and traffic was re-routed when an alarma at a water plant signalled a chlorine release. The alarm was automatically set to go off when the concentration in the air exceeds 1 part per million. The county hazmat team shut off a valve in the plant, stopping the leak. Officials are unsure of what caused the leak but were pleased that the emergency response plans worked as designed. No one was injured due to the incident.
