Chemical Incident Reporting – Week of 5-13-23

NOTE: See here for series background.

Willmar, MN – 5-5-23

Local news reports: Here, here, and here.

Two 150-lb chlorine gas cylinders leaking at very small water treatment facility, no injuries. Good use of leak detection equipment. Not clear from the articles, but this facility is probably not covered by EPA’s security regulations (two small), and is completely exempt (water treatment exemption) from the CFATS regulations, thus the three chlorine cylinders typically found in the small building, could be targeted by terrorists seeking access to chemical weapons.

Not CSB reportable.

Texas City, TX – 5-15-23

Local news reports: Here, here, and here.

Refinery fire. 1 dead and two sent to hospital.

CSB reportable.
