CHEMICAL SPILL-WATER
Water company in W.Va. chemical spill to offer more bottled water at governor's request

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, January 30, 2014 6:12 PM EST
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The water company involved in West Virginia's chemical spill is providing 20 more tractor-trailer loads of bottled water for the nine counties affected.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin requested Thursday that West Virginia American Water offer more bottled water, since the state has spent nearly $890,000 on more than 17.5 million bottles of water.

Counting the new deliveries, the water company estimates it has provided 33 truckloads of water at a $132,000 cost. The company has also bought two more 7,000-gallon tankers.

Freedom Industries' Jan. 9 spill into the water company's supply spurred a water-use ban for 300,000 people. The ban has been lifted, but federal officials are still suggesting that pregnant women avoid drinking the water. Some residents and restaurants are also sticking to just bottled water.
