The embattled company behind West Virginia's chemical spill has reached a bankruptcy court deal for up to $4 million in credit from a lender to help continue operations.
In bankruptcy court testimony, Freedom Industries President Gary Southern called the 12 days since the company's Jan. 9 chemical spill "completely chaotic."
The spill contaminated water supplies for 300,000 people in West Virginia.
Southern had said the company spent $800,000 last week to remedy environmental damage from the spill.
