    UPDATE: Incident on Belmont Ridge Road resolved

    Loudoun County Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management staff are leaving Belmont Ridge Road after responding to a gas leak shortly before 1 p.m.

    While members of the Loudoun rescue squad remained tight-lipped about the incident, Fairfax City Manager Bob Sisson confirmed that there was a chlorine gas leak at the City of Fairfax Water Treatment Plant, located at 20500 block on Belmont Ridge Road in Ashburn.

    "There was a minor pinhole leak that was well-contained within the plant," Sisson said. "... It was resolved without incident."

    The leak caused traffic on Belmont Ridge Road between Hay Road and Chesterton to be blocked off for close to four hours, forcing the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office to re-route traffic and causing slight delays.

    A previous gas leak occurred at the plant in 2005.

    It treats the water from Beaver Dam Resevoir.  the City of fairfax has rights to the resevoir but not the surrounding land.  This co-op was created in the 60’s.

    What I find interesting and I didn’t know, is that there a City of Fairfax water treatment in the middle of Loudoun County!

    “There was a minor pinhole leak that was well-contained within the plant,” Sisson said. “... It was resolved without incident.”

    Just move along folks, nothing to see here, no need for concern.

    So why am I concerned?
