Some 3000 gallons of toxic waste water was released in Palatka, Florida after a power plant's above-ground dwaste water pipeline burst.
Environmental officials were able to contain the spill near the Seminole Electric Cooperative Plant and no damage was registered in the area.
"This spill poses no threat to employee or public safety," a statement from the Seminole company reads. "The spill originated from a separated supply pipe to plant equipment. The spill was entirely contained within Seminole property and occurred away from storm water drainage and conveyance areas. No environmental impacts occurred outside of Seminole property.”
