Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today asked West Virginia American Water President Jeff McIntyre to provide potable and bottled water to West Virginians in the areas affected by the January 9 Elk River chemical spill. 


     “Immediately following West Virginia American Water’s DO NOT USE order on January 9, I began working with the West Virginia National Guard and Office of Emergency Services to provide water and supplies to impacted citizens,” Gov. Tomblin said. “While the DO NOT USE order has been lifted, we continue to receive calls from constituents and organizations requesting water be made available to their communities. To address this need, I have asked West Virginia American Water Company to make available potable and bottled water to West Virginians in the affected areas.”
