Plant sirens sounded early Friday evening at Sarnia’s Imperial manufacturing site.

Public and Government Affairs Manager, Kristina Zimmer said a minor hydrocarbon leak occurred on a piece of equipment that was under repair. She said the sirens were sounded out of caution.

Zimmer added that the release was contained to the site. Air monitoring conducted at the fence line revealed that levels were non-detectable, and there is no off-site impact.
