April 10: Three Workers Treated After Ammonia Leak at Sports Facility


Three workers at the Pownal Sports Centre, a stadium and an indoor ice arena, were treated at the hospital and released after an ammonia leak. A worker was working on a valve when it failed and released the gas. The worker and two co-workers inhaled some ammonia and one sustained skin and breathing irritation. An investigation found that the leak was the result of a mechanical failure of the oil-drain valve.
