GREENBURGH, N.Y. Emergency responders are investigating a chlorine gas leak at a Greenburgh water pumping station.
An equipment malfunction around 11:15 a.m. at the Knollwood Road station, near the Greenburgh Library, sent chlorine vapors into the air, town officials said.
Roads around the area were blocked off as crews responded to the scene. One town employee was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures, according to Greenburgh Commissioner of Public Works Victor Carosi.
Yonkers Fire Rescue, Fairview Fire and the Greenburgh Police Technical Rescue were coordinating entry into the facility to stop the leak.
I have been advised that problem should be cleared in less than a few hours, hopefully much sooner, Supervisor Paul Feiner said in an email just after 1 p.m.
