A chlorine leak at Jacksonville's wastewater land application treatment plant has been contained.
The leak was discovered around 7:00 a.m. when one of the 2,000 pound tanks failed to close electronically. City officials say after examining the tank that less than a pound of chlorine escaped.
The fire department's Hazardous Materials Team responded and put on a special containment cap over the leaking value.
The chlorine is used in the final treatment process of the city's wastewater that is then sprayed onto woods. The manufacture is now fixing the malfunctioning valve.
