DEP officials tell WSAZ.com , a slurry line ruptured sometime between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Kanawha Eagle Prep Plant in Winifrede.

The slurry line runs from the prep plant to the slurry impoundment on the property.

It is unclear how much of the slurry spilled. DEP officials tell WSAZ.com , the slurry did get into Fields Creek and there is evidence it also got into into the Kanawha River.

DEP spokesperson, Tom Aluise tells WSAZ.com , the company used a chemical that is equivalent to MCHM.

This is unacceptable! What's next? Are we supposed to stop using the water?

Does anyone not think this is odd? I mean I know Obama hates coal but, do we go out and risk American lives to yet find another reason to stop use of coal? Think about it....

Does anyone recall the big FEMA Region 3 scare end of 2013.... We are FEMA Region 3. Glad they had already shipped water into our area for an "emergency".
