Thousands of residents warned to not use water
Shoppers at the Kroger on Charleston's West Side -- and at other stores throughout the region -- loaded their carts, baskets and arms with bottled water after residents in eight counties were told Thursday not to drink, wash with or cook with water provided by West Virginia American Water.

So the water company has all this bad water in its tanks which it cannot dump into the river because the DEP will not permit such dumping. So the water company cannot get rid of the bad water. If all the customers start turning all their faucets on then the tanks should be drained unless the water company is still sending bad water to its tanks. If the leak has been stopped, then you would think the water company can start producing good water again and put it into its tanks. So, until the customers help get rid of all the bad water, the company cannot get good water into the tanks. The water company will try to charge for all the water used, but who is going to pay for a bad product. The sanitary board will certainly charge for the water because it has to clean the water before it can go into the river. If we wait for the crappy and miserly federally mandated toilets to be flushed enough to get the tanks emptied, we won't have good water for weeks. So, started running your faucets and showers to get the tanks emptied!

So where does the waste water go? to the Pacific Ocean to contaminate it. Wouldn't it go right back into your main water supply source?

Have you ever looked at a map or a globe? Never mind when it gets to the end of the ocean it just falls off.
