In regard to some chemicals, such as Benzene, Arsenic, Glycols, it can take many years before people start getting sick with kidney failure, liver disease, cancer, etc.People haven't become ill? Several people I know have suffered from rashes, skin lesions, stomach upset, welts around their eyes all due to this companies negligence. I haven't because I refuse to use any water until the smell is not present. I don't believe in people sewing over stupid things but I firmly believe this company deserves to loose every dime they have.
I hope and pray that your water wasn't contaminated very long, but the way things go in West Virginia, that leak may have been going on for months or even years. If the WVDEP knew anything about a leak of dangerous chemicals, they certainly wouldn't tell anyone, because the financial benefits for keeping their mouth shut is huge!
LIE AND DENY IS THE NORM FOR WVDEP!!!
