CHEMICAL SPILL-WATER WORRIES
After chemical spill in 1 water system, distrust has many on bottled water, changing habits

Reported by: Associated Press
Saturday, March 29, 2014 11:55 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


Ever since chemicals spilled last January into the drinking water of 300,000 West Virginia residents, Charleston resident Scott McMillion and his family have used their public supply for just one thing: flushing their toilet. Distrustful and angry, he's teaching locals how to trap and purify rainwater as a drinking source.

He's among many in this corner of West Virginia who have changed their water consumption habits. Many don't trust official declarations that the water is safe to drink, months after the chemical ran into the Elk River.

Grassroots groups are providing wary residents thousands of gallons of clean drinking water from independent sources, some from other states. Others are surviving on bottled water for cooking or drinking, and some are simply moving away.
