UPDATE: Nappanee Street reopened after chlorine leak


A busy Elkhart street was shut down for a little more than an hour Saturday evening.

Police shut down Nappanee Street between Franklin and Lexington because of a chlorine leak at the wastewater plant.

It happened around 7:45pm. A dispatcher tells us, no evacuations were ordered and no injuries reported.

A firefighter on the scene told our crew that they were able to contain the leak and reopened the street around 9:00pm.
