Kanawha Health Department releases more data on impacts of Elk River spill

Edited from "Our Water"

Dr. Rahul Gupta, director of the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department presented to the National Association of County & City Health Officials last week. His presentation, available here, provides more insights and data into the impact of the spill than anything else released by a state or local agency to date. Dr. Gupta’s analysis probably doesn’t tell those of us who experienced the water crisis anything that will surprise us, but it’s good to have real data on the public health and economic impacts of the spill – especially since these impacts have repeatedly been downplayed by the state Bureau of Public Health.
