West Virginia Regulators Postpone Chemical Spill Hearings

December 3, 2014

West Virginia utility regulators are again postponing hearings for the water company affected in a January chemical spill.

In an order last month, the state Public Service Commission canceled hearings scheduled Feb. 10-12 for West Virginia American Water.

The commission is probing the water company’s response to a chemical spill that tainted its water supply. The Freedom Industries leak spurred a tap-water ban for 300,000 people for days.

The commission says it will reschedule the hearings in a subsequent order. It cited ongoing discussions about confidentiality of company documents.

The hearings were originally scheduled for October.
