Kudos to City of Charleston, Kanawha County and State DOH

These days, there aren't too many govt entities that we can actually thank and say "good job".

However, the City of Charleston (primarily) the street dept, county officials, and the State DOH should be given credit for being so pro-active, reactive, and diligent in their actions to clear the roads and work so hard in their snow removal efforts. Great work - especially over the past few months.

Also, the Mayor's Office, County Commission, and Kanawha/Charleston Health Dept should also be recognized in their performance and parts in the water crisis. If it weren't for their actions, concern, and adamant stance to come to the aid of the people, who knows what condition this city (and surrounding areas) would be in.

We are fortunate to have a group of individuals who are truly concerned about the welfare of this city and its citizens and have exhibited nothing but honest, intelligent, and trustworthy dealings in how they responded to the situation.

Thank You.

However, we can NOT extend much appreciation to those folks in State govt, the water company, and freedom. In fact, quite the opposite is the response from the majority of the folks. Dissatisfaction, disappointment, discontent and distrust.

Meeting after meeting and still, a resolution to the problem has yet to be enacted.

By the way, the senate bill (which passed last night) to push for advanced above-ground chemical storage tank regulations dropped the amendment for "medical monitoring" of the 300,000 affected citizens - at the last minute.

And both the "gov" and wvawc have "decided" to no longer provide free water stations in the aftermath of the water crisis. Per reports, they are basing their decisions on the CDC's estimation (guess) that the levels of MCHM which are still present in the water are no longer harmful to humans. Really? Everytime it rains, it will wash more of the chemical(s) into the river, only to contaminate the water supply again (and again).

The water company has also announced that now - it will NOT replace the 16 charcoal filters in the plant.

My, my. How derelict and irresponsible can a company be?
