1. Have an active investigator collecting, documenting, and reporting all potential areas of pollution to the Elk River leading into Water plant.
2. KNOW and be prepared for ALL chemicals that could spill into river, especially from sites such as "Freedom Enterprises"?
3. Be prepared to TEST and QUANTIFY chemicals known to be potential spills/pollution.
As in 9/11, I am amazed at the LOW LEVEL of INTELLIGENCE demonstrated by so called authorities when our protection is needed.

This American Water Co. fruit cake spokesman knows nothing. We have no idea of how hazardous our water actually is. We have no idea of how long the poison tanks had been leaking. If we are seeing 'leaching' through the soil ongoing, then it appears that the leak may have been spilling for months or even years! American Water Co. didn't even have a test for the poison!

Dude you are an idiot. In all the years American Water has been around this is the first time this has ever happened. They have made the public aware and are working around the clock to correct it. Just do as you are told show some patience and deal with it.

My god dude if you csan't deal with a little inconvenience like this then you have problems nore than not bathing.

Deal with it you idiot!

My impression is the YOU need to deal with the incompetence. It may be an impossible task from the low quality of your reply.

But thanks for your attempt to further the thread.

A little inconvenience? You must work for them. This is a major tragedy and they are downplaying it like it's nothing. They don't care about West Virginians, they only care about taking our natural resources. People cannot live life now because of these careless idiots. That's more than just an inconvenience. It's hard to tell what the long-term effects will be until independent scientists come here and document it. There's scientists on there way here right now who will never allow them to get away with it. Those responsible need prison time.

We're all dealing with the failures of American Water Company. I don't see anyone 'panicking'. The first 2 posts of this thread stand uncontested and indicate a breach of trust and confidence in our municipal water system.

@ Atomic Gentile

There's no scientist on the way so stop with all the nonsince and to call not being able to take a shower for maybe a day or two a tragedy is just asinine you twerp. Seriously, is going 24 maybe 36 hours without a shower or washing clothes really a tragedy? Really?

@TKav

According to your logic it's always somebody to blame and there's always some kind of conspiracy going on. Please stop responding you are wasting my time. Twerp!

This is by far the best thread on the subject and there seems little to no real interest other than trolling; Has anyone heard about a spill in the Ohio River yesterday or today? Hats off to TKav; stay on it, some people agree with you.

Where was the EPA when it came to checking the integrity of the tanks? For 5 years, EPA has taken no enforcement actions against Freedom Industries.

No it is not WVAWC's fault about the leak but they sure as heck could have been proactive and raised concerns about monitoring for a GIGANTIC CHEMICAL storage and use facility RIGHT ABOVE their plant. Oh wait that requires planning and responsibility and forethought which sadly most Americans have no clue about. Heads need to roll in lots over places over this one. Start with the politicians...

Hey Dipspit yes it was owned by Germans for almost a decade...maybe they saw how messed up things could get and they got out of it.
