[Water] Phenols leaked from a wastewater storage tank due to a crack and permeated into the ground. As a countermeasure, water was removed and activated carbon used to treat the water, but the concentration of phenols in wastewater after this processing exceeded the regulatory requirement. The pollution was cleaned up in two months and wastewater readings have now returned to normal.
