Source of West Virginia Spill Ordered to Disclose Chemicals
CHARLESTON, W.V. (WKRC) -- West Virginia regulators order Freedom Industries to disclose everything that spilled when a storage tank leaked and contaminated the water supply for 300,000 people.
The tank at Freedom's Charleston facility spilled a coal-cleaning chemical, crude MCHM, on January 9th in the Elk River. The company now says the tank also contained about 400 gallons of another chemical called PPH.
Initial tests did not detect it in the water.
