MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- Middletown officials say there's no danger to the city's drinking water after a lime powder leak at the water treatment plant.
Emergency services were called to the plant at about 12:45 p.m. Thursday after a leak was discovered. Officials suspect a valve failure from a storage tank caused the leak, they said in a news release.
Two plant workers were treated at Atrium Medical Center.
Officials said the leak was contained in a maintenance area and emphasized there's no danger to the drinking water.
The lime powder is used in water softening.
