Today, January 9th is the second anniversary of the Freedom Industries MCHM chemical spill that contaminated our water – and we’re still waiting to find out why WV American Water let it get into our homes and businesses.
Yet, last Monday, the Charleston Gazette/Mail reported that the WV PSC was “…hinting that it could drop its long-stalled investigation into West Virginia American Water Company’s response to the leak’s contamination of its regional drinking water supply.”
WV American Water must be held accountable for its actions during the chemical spill. This investigation has been stalled for over a year because of conflict of interests and vacancies at the PSC. It’s time for them to get moving, not throw in the towel.
