Burlington beach closed following accidental discharge
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Burlington’s Leddy Park Beach was closed to recreation on Wednesday.
It’s not because of blue-green algae but because of a potential flammable carcinogen the city says was inadvertently released into a tributary north of the beach.
The city says there was an accidental discharge of steam condensate and it may have contained less than a gallon of styrene.
The state spills team has been notified and the city says cleanup is underway.
