Despite Rod Jones of South Charleston being told his region could start flushing and using his water again, he still experienced symptoms after using his water.
"My stomach was upset within seconds and my hands broke up in a rash," he said.

It's something health experts told us they expected to see as people began turning on the water again.

A news report I saw showed a guy with a clear water bottle that had tap water in it, there was a clear sticky film all over the inside of the bottle. It appeared to me that the chemical may be coating the inside of the pipes. He said he flushed his pipes many times but the water was still coming out bad.. very scary if it left a coating.
The second or third most active industry in West Virginia are trial attorneys.
Anybody, for any reason. for any length of time messes with my water the rest of their stinkin’ LIFE is going to be filled with the meanest, greediest attorneys on planet if I have anything to do with it. I care not the politics of the polluter.
They are turning up in health facilities now, even though the water is deemed safe, to jump on the class action suit bandwagon, which is inevitable. It’s like a bus accident on the south side of Chicago where after the accident, people who were never even on the bus climb aboard, so they can join in the monetary spoils of the coming lawsuits. Follow the money.
I live in an area where our tap water is considered high quality and I still have hardly ever drank the stuff in over 30 years.
What the f are these people thinking?
Oh I should have read the article first.
This stuff is supposedly burning their skin.
