Chemical Spill Company Files for Bankruptcy
Freedom Industries, the company responsible for the chemical spill in West Virginia earlier this month that left more than 300,000 residents and many businesses without drinkable tap water, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the New York Times reports.
A second chemical called PPH was also in the leaking tank, Freedom Industries told federal and state investigators this week.
Authorities say it is now safe to drink the water, but the state’s Education Department has recommended that nine school districts continue using bottled water and bottled-water sales remain high, according to the New York Times. The state attorney general’s office is investigating reports of price-gouging related to water sales.
