Water treatment worker taken to hospital in hazmat incident
NORTH SALT LAKE — One man was sent to the hospital following a hazardous materials incident Monday.
About 12:45 p.m., a worker was trying to unload some chemicals into one of North Salt Lake's water treatment buildings, 1100 N. 40 East, when it somehow got mixed with another chemical, said South Davis Metro Fire Chief Jim Rampton.
The chemicals that were involved were still being investigated Monday. The reaction formed a "little cloud of something," which caused the worker breathing problems, Rampton said.
He was taken to a local hospital to be checked. Several streets in the area were temporarily blocked off and workers at other businesses were told to stay indoors, but the incident was contained to the one building, Rampton said.
