- The significant difference between the CDC’s “screening level” of 1ppm and the WVTAP project’s level of 120 ppb (eight times lower). WVTAP arrived at the lower level by taking into account the impacts of breathing and touching MCHM, not just ingesting it.
- Flushing made people sick. Hospital visits and illnesses peaked right when the spill first happened – and then again after the “do not use” order was lifted and people were instructed to flush.
- As late as the week of February 24th, less than 10% of people were drinking the water.
- More than 75% of people estimated that the spill cost their household more than $100 per week through the beginning of March.
