Road Closed Due to Anhydrous Tank Leak Southeast of Independence

An anhydrous tank leak southeast of Independence led to a road closure Monday afternoon.

The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office says around 3 pm, they received several 911 calls of an anhydrous tank leak in a farm field in the 2400 block of Quasqueton Diagonal Boulevard. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters from Independence and Quasqueton responded to the scene. Authorities say it appears a valve on the tank failed and caused the leak.

Deputies temporarily shut down the road for the public’s safety.
