Emergency crews investigating sludge along 22nd Street

March 10, 2009, 9:08 a.m. Updated March 10, 2009, 3:16 p.m.


A hazardous materials unit from Olathe is working to clean up sludge on Delaware Street in the 2200 block.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical HAZMAT and other units were sent to the area to investigate the material shortly before 9 a.m.

A section of Delaware Street has been blocked off.

Lawrence fire officials have not returned repeated telephone calls made today from the Journal-World about the incident.

Didn't someone just get in trouble for illegal dumping in that area?

I saw a Lawrence firetruck and hazmat truck turn into that area this morning around 8:30 or so. I remember because they were eastbound on 23rd and turned north - which is ILLEGAL that time of day. No sirens, no lights, just an ILLEGAL left turn.
