A chemical used in the water treatment process leaked from this pipe into the Arkansas River early Wednesday morning before the leak was stopped about two hours later. Ferric sulfate, which is used to settle out particles in untreated water, leaked through a corroded drain pipe at the water treatment plant. The spill killed some small and juvenile fish, officials said, but didn’t create a health risk to the public.
