Emergency responders arrived at the North Meridian Water Plant, on 48th Place, for a reported chlorine leak around 8:15 a.m. Monday. 

No injuries were reported.

According to Meridian Fire Marshall Jason Collier, the Meridian Fire Department responds to chemical leaks with the Lauderdale County Emergency Management Agency. 

While protocols vary by chemical, Collier said that firefighter suits protected firefighters sufficiently from chlorine leaks for firefighters to enter the building and manually shut off leaks.

Scott Spears, the director of LEMA, didn't answer calls Monday for comment.
