WEST CARROLLTON — There’s no immediate danger to the public after hazmat crews were called Tuesday night to the Veolia Environmental Services off Infirmary Road.
“There is an ammonia vapor that is coming from the plant,” West Carrollton police public information officer Maureen Flaute said.
Officials confirmed the leak to be “all clear” Wednesday morning just after 1 a.m.
Police and fire crews were in the parking lot of Veolia Environmental Services, 4301 Infirmary Road, investigating the source of fumes first reported shortly after 8:15 p.m. The company transports chemical waste.
In 2009, an explosion at Veolia Environmental Services caused $50 million in damages and four workers were hurt.
Infirmary Road was closed between Hemple and Farmersville West Carrollton roads. Residents who live on that stretch of Infirmary Road were requested to evacuate their homes but not ordered to evacuate, Flaute said.
It’s not clear how much ammonia has leaked, nor what caused it to happen, she said.
