No Injuries During Chlorine Leak at Wastewater Plant
SHADYSIDE — Firefighters and a hazmat unit were called in Friday to contain a chlorine leak inside the Shadyside Wastewater Treatment Plant.

OR&W Fire District Assistant Fire Chief John Shaver said employees discovered a detection alarm going off before 7 a.m. and called 911 for help.

Chemical Leak At Water Works Plant Could Be Cause Of Dying Trees
BIRMINGHAM, AL - A chemical leak at the Birmingham Water Works Shades Mountain Filter Plant on US 280 that sent more than 50 people to the hospital Feb. 27 may have affected several trees surrounding the plant. Complaints from neighbors who have seen their pine trees turn brown has the BWWB investigating the matter.

"An accidental mix of sodium hypochlorite (which is essentially bleach) and ferric sulfate caused a chlorine off gas at our Shades Mountain Filter Plant," the BWWB said at the time of the leak. "We use these components to treat water as our normal practice, however they are not meant to be mixed together."

Water Works employees and people nearby who breathed in the gas were treated at local hospitals, but no serious injuries were reported.

The Birmingham Fire Department reported that hazmat entry teams closed the valves involved in the contamination, and officials determined that the issue had been resolved without further incident. However, since the leak, a large number of pine trees around the plant have shown signs of discoloration, including in a residential neighborhood and nearby church in Mountain Brook. Initially the BWWB denied any responsibility for the problems with the trees. The BWWB has since backtracked on that denial and said they are investigating the matter.

The Laramie Community Recreation Center was evacuated Tuesday morning after a chemical spill.

Assistant City Manager Todd Feezer said chlorine was spilled after a staff member accidentally mixed a small amount of acid into the chlorine tanks during a chemical transfer, causing an “unfortunate combination of chemicals.” The evacuation was to allow for the spill to be cleaned and the chlorine fumes to dissipate.

“We’re very grateful that we didn’t have any dangerous exposure to staff or participants or residents of this community,” Feezer said.

Chlorine gas can be dangerous if inhaled. The Laramie Fire Department responded to the scene as both LFD and as a hazmat team through Wyoming Regional Emergency Response Team No. 3.

Accidental Creation Of Chlorine Gas Causes Evacuation At PCMR Restaurant
A popular restaurant on Park City Mountain Resort was evacuated Friday morning so a hazmat team could take care of a dangerous substance.

Around 10:15 am on Friday, Park City Fire Department received a phone call that chlorine gas had accidently been created at the Summit House cafeteria located at the top of Bonanza Express. Which caused an evacuation of the building. Park City Battalion Chief Steve Zwirn explains how that happened.

“The cleaning crew was working at the Summit House on Park City Mountain Resort cleaning the bathrooms.” Battalion Chief Zwirn said, “They mixed bleach, and ammonia into a spray bottle, a spritzer bottle. When you mix bleach and ammonia you create Chlorine Gas. When they started to spritz the bottle or spray the mixture out, they were basically breathing a cloud of Chlorine Gas. Two people, to my knowledge, were in the room when they did that. Both of which were transported by the ski patrol to a local clinic.”

Elks Point Road in Round Hill reopening after chlorine gas leak
Elks Point Road in Round Hill will be reopening shortly following a nearly four-hour closure due to a chlorine gas leak.

The leak occurred in a research and development building at the corner of Elks Point Road and U.S. 50, Eric Guevin, fire marshal with the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District, told the Tribune.

The gas, which is toxic, was confined to a safety cabinet in the building.

While nobody was exposed to the gas, the leak did warrant a response from a four-county HAZMAT team. The necessary response prolonged the road closure, which is on the portion of Elks Point Road adjacent to the Round Hill Shopping Center.
