WVTAP Finalizes Reports on Water

The research group in charge of studying the January 9th chemical spill will release preliminary test results next week. Some reports have already been released, including the idea that the chemical or licorice smell, can be sensed at lower parts per billion levels than initially thought. Results coming next week will be from the initial tests done on pipes in homes after the Freedom Industries chemical leak. The West Virginia Testing Assessment Project has several more studies in the works, including possible reactions between the chemicals that leaked, and the chemicals used by the water company in the filitration system.
