West Virginia residents fear water is unsafe

Officials of Charleston, West Virginia, declared water emergency after residents complained from odor in drinking water.

It has been almost a month since residents in the city of Charleston first learned their water had been contaminated. A chemical tank located near the river running through West Virginia’s biggest city began leaking a sticky substance used for processing coal.

Public health officials have now flushed the chemical from water supply but residents still fear their drinking water is not safe.
