Water Main Break Affects Fareway Warehouse

Posted on 08 November 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Most people were cautioned about an anhydrous ammonia leak at the Fareway warehouse Monday evening.  Sheriff Ron Fehr says the several agencies responded, including Emergency Management and Des Moines Haz-Mat.  Fehr says the warehouse was evacuated.  No injuries were reported.  He noted the leak was confined to a small area and was no danger to the public.  However, a main waterline beneath the floor of the warehouse ruptured and heaved the floor apparently causing the anhydrous leak.  Quite a bit of water and mud entered the warehouse creating a massive clean up.  The cause of the water line break has not been determined.
