VIDEO: Ammonia No Longer a Risk for Vineland Residents
VINELAND - Vineland residents can now return to their homes and may not be asked to leave again as work continues at the South Jersey Ice and Cold Storage Plant. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that they have removed nearly 8,000 pounds of anhydrous ammonia from the East Pear Street Building. Residents living nearby have been asked to evacuate several times over the past month due to the potential of an ammonia leak. The EPA says they will continue to monitor the air quality as they work to clean up the building, and a determination will be made next week as to whether or not any future evacuations will be needed.
