A taxpayer-funded research team has completed initial water testing in 10 homes after a chemical leak tainted the water supply of 300,000 West Virginians.
The results are expected back in one to three weeks.
Jeff Rosen of Corona Environmental Consulting is partnering on the project. He said experts have also been contracted to create an odor analysis to determine at what levels the little-known chemicals can be smelled in tap water.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has approved $762,000 for the study.
Information on the project is available on WVTAP's website: www.wvtapproject.com
