CHEMICAL SPILL-CONTRACTOR
Company at center of West Virginia chemical spill will remove contractor following more spills

Reported by: Associated Press
Wednesday, June 18, 2014 9:35 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


Freedom Industries is ousting the contractor responsible for spills last week at the site of a January leak into the state's biggest drinking water supply.

Freedom Chief Restructuring Officer Mark Welch says the company is transitioning past Civil & Environmental Consultants. The change could take a few weeks.

State Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Randy Huffman on Tuesday urged Freedom to replace the Pittsburgh contractor, which heads site cleanup.

Stormwater from a Freedom trench poured into the Elk River on Thursday and Friday. Tests at the water treatment plant downstream showed no chemical traces either day.

Huffman says he urged, but could not force, Freedom to replace the contractor.

Freedom needs bankruptcy court approval for most actions.

Freedom's January spill contaminated 300,000 people's water for days.
