Fracking material was my first guess, but I was pretty sure it was going to be something coal/oil related.

Wow, given that it's in West by god Virginia, you've got a TV-psychic-like ability going there. Can you tell us who will win the 2016 Presidential election and be shot by a crazed gunman next week? ;)

It's up to nine counties as of a few hours ago... http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2014/01/09/22245996-west-virginia-che m ical-spill-cuts-water-to-up-to-300000-homes-state-of-emergency-declare d?lite

"The advisory was expanded at night to nine counties and includes West Virginia American Water customers in Boone, Cabell, Clay, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Putnam, and Roane counties. "

Sounds like a good time to vacation pretty much anywhere else... assuming one can afford it.

It would just be terrible if the EPA levied a fine against "Freedom Industries," because it might hurt their feelings and then they'd take their Job Creator-ing elsewhere.

"Freedom Industries"?? Seriously?

0.2.22 GENOTOXICITY

typhimurium, cyclohexanol was NOT mutagenic in
concentrations of 500 mcg/plate, either in the presence
or absence of a rat liver homogenate activation system
(HSDB , 2002).

cells with a cyclohexanol dose of 100 mcmol/L (RTECS,
2002).

Are they absolutely sure you can use it to put out fires?  Because if they are close enough to fracking country, then it may not work for that, either.

I hope they have it fixed by Saturday - that's bath night in WV.

I grew up in that area, this is just one of many such incidents. The area is called the Chemical Valley for a reason - Dow,  Monsanto, Dupont, FMC, Union Carbide, Bayer, and many others had chemical plants there at one time or still do.

Heh, yeah, okay that was unnecessary (and not like I could tell anyway, really). I couldn't remember if they were holding them up and aiming, or pointed down at the floor in a ready, but don't want to shoot anyone accidentally pose, so I may have just been going for "ready and alert". Dunno the adjectives for the positions.

Must be the deluxe water boarding that leads to skin blistering and non-stop vomiting, and these people get it for free.  Lucky.

Man, and here at DoomCorp we're busy trying to do this kind of thing on purpose, and a bunch of Freedom-loving scrubs do it on accident!

Do you know how hard it is to set up purposeful chemical spills that LOOK like an accident?

According to a news release, the leak happened at Freedom Industries in Charleston. The leaked product is 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol, which is used in the froth flotation process of coal washing and preparation.

I always buy my coal extra frothy so I'm somewhat enraged that this chemical is still to create coal for the non-frothy bunch. In my opinion, frothy coal burns better and is obviously better for the environment.

I know. I'm a hipster coal burner but I was extra frothy way before the other extra frothy coal burning hipsters got in to this.
