On January 9, WV Rivers and local partners are hosting a Safe Water Public Forum at the Culture Center in Charleston in conjunction with the 2 year anniversary of the water crisis. Attendees will learn about potential contamination sources to local water supplies, discuss collaborative ways to manage those threats, understand how to provide input on source water protection plans, and connect with local groups working to improve water quality.

WV Rivers developed a Drinking Water Protection Citizen Toolkit as a guide to how you can be involved in protecting your water. At this year’s Jan. 9 event, we will distribute free copies of the toolkit and provide insight into addressing threats to the local water supply. Local partners will provide additional information on how they promote drinking water protection.

There will be free food, door prizes and kids’ activities!

    In Charleston, West Virginia the disturbance of the ground with the MCHM should cause the water adjacent to be contaminated and I have not heard of any monitoring of the water at the intake site reported by the state government, news media, or West Virginia American Water.
    Our state waters need to be protected at source and each community should be aggressively testing small streams across our state weekly. The elected state government does no regular inspections of state streams, thus protecting industry against the health of citizens of West Virginia they are constitutionally required to protect.
