AUGUSTA, Ga.---The Augusta Fire Department and the Emergency Management Agency responded to Solvay Advanced Polymers on the south side of town this morning.
Pamela Barber of Solvay says a "whisp" of sulfur trioxide was released from a train car. She says it was not enough to cause any problems.
The leak came after a problem with a release valve. It was tightened and the leak stopped.
The material did not belong to Solvay, but to DuPont Chemicals. Goshen Industrial Blvd. was closed for a time near Highway 56.
