West Virginia Water is Declared Safe…Sort of…Maybe…as the 60-Mile Chemical Plume Heads to Ohio
Posted by Daisy Luther January 17, 2014
Local authorities report that the water is now safe in some areas, partially lifting the ban, with the careful wording that the current levels of chemicals in the water are “believed to be safe”. Local stores ran out of water very quickly after the spill occurred, and those without stored water were left to fight it out over the few remaining bottles within a day of the accident.
Offering further evidence that ingesting this might not be a good idea, although officials say that the water is safe, they are warning pregnant women not to consume it. The director of the CDC, Dr. Thomas Frieden , recommends caution. ”Due to limited availability of data, and out of an abundance of caution, you may wish to consider an alternative drinking water source for pregnant women until the chemical is at non-detectable levels in the water distribution system.”
