Public school students in four southern West Virginia counties have another day off due to a chemical spill that tainted the water supply.
The counties are among nine affected by last Thursday's spill of a chemical used in coal processing from a Freedom Industries facility in Charleston.
Tens of thousands of West Virginia American Water customers are still awaiting word on when they can resume using tap water after flushing out their systems. Those customers remain under a "do not use" order restricting tap water use only to flushing toilets.
