WADDINGTON — A 150-pound chlorine tank at the wastewater treatment plant in Waddington began leaking from a valve that was not sealed properly Wednesday morning, according to First Assistant Chief Dustin Haenel of the Waddington Volunteer Fire Department.
At 11:25 a.m., a St. Lawrence County Hazardous Material team was on the scene and suiting up to enter the plant, Mr. Haenel said.
“They will have hazmat technicians go in with suits on and they have a kit that will cap off the leak,” Mr. Haenel reported at the time. “Then it will be removed.”
A 300-foot area around the plant was cordoned off, Mr. Haenel said, but there is no danger to the community.
The leaking tank was safely removed from the facility and the hazmat team cleared the scene.
