Watson Grinding and Manufacturing
Explosion Anniversary 

January 24th marks the third anniversary of the Watson Grinding and Manufacturing explosion in District A that killed three people. Since the explosion, City ordinances were changed relating to the storage of hazardous materials to require reporting of materials stored outside and to close loopholes. The ordinance changes also expanded the areas where hazardous materials cannot be stored.

We will never forget this explosion and all those impacted by it, but we are moving on to make positive changes for the City to try to prevent this from happening again.

Thank you again to all the people, groups, businesses, and elected officials who helped during this difficult time!
