Chemical found on former Dow property identified

After environmental testing, sulfuryl chloride was determined to be the liquid found in a glass jar on the former Dow property now known as Zionsville Development Park and owned by the town for redevelopment purposes. According to an email from Wayne DeLong, director of planning and economic development, the compound is man-made and is used as "a chlorinating and dehydrating agent, as well as in wool treatment and pharmaceutical manufacturing." "At room temperature, sulfuryl chloride exists as a colorless, pungent and corrosive liquid," DeLong wrote. "It is often used as a source of chlorine." The glass bottle containing the liquid was found Friday, July 26, by crews installing utility lines along 106th Street between Dahlia Drive and Bennett Parkway. See Wednesday's Times Sentinel for the full story.
