A chlorine leak at WaterOne's plant in KCK means some residents are urged to stay indoors.
Assistant Fire Chief Craig Duke said the department was contacted at 4:30 p.m. to go to the plant at 76th Street and Holiday Drive. Workers said they had a leak in a tank in the water processing area, and had shut off the tank. However, workers were unclear how much chlorine had escaped.
WaterOne serves much of Johnson County.
Duke said there was a significant reading in the area near the tank. There is no danger to residents, but as a precaution those who live nearby are advised to stay inside with the windows and doors closed until the all clear is given.
Because of winds, the all clear should be soon, Duke said.
