The first mile will have chlorine concentrations of 1,000 ppm, causing death after one or two breaths with no opportunity for escape.

The study proved secondary containment to be, by far, the safest technology for containing and preventing releases of chlorine gas. To see secondary containment - search CHLORTANKER.
