From NewsChannel 9…

Cleanup is still underway at the Wacker Charleston plant according to Bradley County Officials.

Bradley County EMA Director Troy Spence says until this weekend, the room that was used to house the damaged piping with chemicals in them, was unsafe for workers to enter to clean-up.

Spence told us he now knows for a fact, that room was made safe to enter this weekend so the clean-up process to continue.

Spence says the explosion two weeks ago damaged the pipes and a small amount of chemicals continued to leak in what’s called a burp reaction.

That’s when moisture enters the open pipes, causing a small amount of chemicals to come from it. Spence says those burps are not a threat to the public.
