Ohio environmental officials said lime sludge leakage which was discovered likely would not contaminate the environment.
Lime sludge, which is a byproduct of the water softening process, began to leak from a pipe near Morse Road and Interstate 270 on Monday morning.
Erin Strouse of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency said that Monday's leakage was believed to be due to an older pipe that had issues with breaks in the line.
According to Strouse, a line that runs from the east side to McKinley Avenue on the west side was believed to be the site of the latest breaks. Officials recently have had problems with the line near Bethel Road.
Strouse said that she believed the break was caught early enough and would not impact the environment such as by getting into the storm sewer system.
An OEPA coordinator was dispatched to the scene to assess the situation.
