Scrubber system to be installed this week in Wheatley

A scrubber system designed to capture H2S gas emissions at the site of earlier incidents in downtown Wheatley was scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday and installed this week.

Ryan Brown, Chatham-Kent Director of Public Works, said once the system is installed, testing will be undertaken and the unit should be fully operational within the next few days.

The unit, which is being brought in from Ohio, will be placed in the municipal parking lot.

Filters in the unit will trap any H2S gas and reduce it to zero.

The current flare stack onsite will remain as a backup system for the time being as an additional safety measure, Municipal officials added.
