Bardstown Fire Department and Nelson County EMS were called out to the Bardstown Water Treatment Plant on Boston Road Monday afternoon on report of a hazmat situation.

According to Deputy Chief Trevor Mattingly, city employees were switching out chlorine cylinders when a small leak was discovered.

“They had it secured and shut off before we got on scene,” Mattingly said.

City Risk Manager Greg Ashworth said the cylinders and valves were inspected and there was no cause for concern to the employees, building or the water supply.
