U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin wants the West Virginia facility that caused a chemical spill torn to the ground.
Manchin said demolishing the facility and its tanks is the only way to restore confidence in the water system.
Manchin spokesman Jonathan Kott said the senator is looking into mechanisms to order the facility's demolition.
A company official did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
