Inspectors check for chemical

A TEAM of inspectors from a local sanitation bureau was checking manholes for a toxic chemical after buckets of ethanethiol were found on Tuesday in a grassy area of Zhangjiang High-Tech Park in Pudong New Area.

The persistent smell indicated there may be more than one dump site.

The buckets of ethanethiol were found dumped near the intersection of Libing and Aidisheng roads.

"We scooped out 9 cubic meters of the grassy area this morning," Zhang Peijun, an official with the Pudong Environmental Protection and Public Sanitation Bureau, said yesterday.

The liquid belonged to Shanghai Lengmu Chemical Engineering Co Ltd, which is relocating, police said.

The company said it had commissioned workers from a property management company to handle waste left behind. The property management company hasn't been named.

Police said the case was still under investigation.
