SAFETY BOARD HEARING
Panel to discuss 2010 West Virginia plant explosion that killed 3, January chemical spill

Reported by: Associated Press
Friday, July 11, 2014 6:10 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The federal Chemical Safety Board is coming to Charleston next week to release findings about a New Cumberland metal recycling plant explosion that killed three workers in December 2010.

The board said Thursday that it also will update the public on its investigation of a January chemical spill at the July 16 meeting. The Freedom Industries tank leak contaminated drinking for 300,000 people for days.

In March, metal recycler AL Solutions in New Cumberland settled to pay a $100,000 civil penalty to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and a $97,000 penalty to the U.S. Department of Labor.

The settlement requires AL Solutions to process or dispose of 2.4 million pounds of titanium and zirconium stored at two facilities. It also must implement safety procedures for the New Cumberland plant.
