Breathing zone samples for chlorine were taken in a plant extracting magnesium (7439954) from brine (SIC-2819) from the Great Salt Lake. A health hazard was documented due to excessive worker exposure to chlorine (7782505) gas in the reactor building and the electrolytic cell building. Confidential employee interviews document this hazard since many of the workers showed symptoms of overexposure to chlorine gas.
