Hazmat crews investigating chlorine leak at Bay View treatment plant

Hazmat crews investigating chlorine leak at Bay View treatment plant

The Bay View wastewater treatment plant in Toledo had a scare around 8:30 a.m. Monday.

During a routine cylinder change, employees discovered chlorine leaking near a valve connection. Toledo Fire & Rescue hazmat crews arrived to secure the valve.

"We made entry with our level one suits to go into the facility and shut the valve off, which we did," said Fire & Rescue's Pvt. Sterling Rahe. "Once it was shut off, the product is still going to be a part within that building, but again the air scrubbers were working and then they were going to monitor from that point."

One employee was evaluated at the hospital but none were seriously injured.
