Here we go again.
I can't wait to hear people saying how much we don't need the EPA anymore. Just trust company safety measures.

"Advisory" not ban.
The chemical dissolves calcium deposits. But you have to leave it in the pipes for three days. Thus, water co. Is not doing flushing.
Since the chem is not toxic, but stinks, advising no use. That also keeps in in the system longer, clears the calcium, reduces pressure, wear on old pipes, stain on equipment. Can't have a bunch of people bathing and showering, even if it is softer water. The goal is to let it sit and work.
Shutting down Freedom to get them off that old road by the river, which has to be maintained and keeps slipping. Plus, they are sitting too close to the new runway extension. That's problem with the Feds.
FREE LAND in Nitro, which is already a toxic pit. Better for transportation costs too. freedom will be able to zip right onto the interstate from their new digs near I-64.
tell the kids to be ready for school on Monday.
