Staff remained onsite via a dusk to pledge services were not interrupted.

The conditions started Monday morning when, during a slight chemical delivery, sodium hypochlorite was incidentally eliminated into a polyaluminum chloride bulk tank. The chemical greeting expelled chlorine gas into a air, forcing staff to close down a H2O diagnosis plant.

One worker was treated as a prevision for transformation concerns though was uninjured and has been expelled from care.

The plant’s operations building was also evacuated as a precaution, while non-essential staff were relieved of duty. Core staffers continued operative during a protected plcae nearby. Municipal reserve member remained on-site and will support any investigations required. 

The municipality remained in hold with Alberta Health Services and there were no fears around a reserve or peculiarity of a water, though concerns with intensity disruptions to unchanging H2O services as work crews and puncture staff rushed to repair a problem.
