I attended and filmed the entire West Virginia Testing and Assessment Project public meeting held today at West Virginia State University. This video is just me giving a quick summary during the lunch break about the engineering team’s findings and future plans.
I’ll be posting more video in the coming days. I also be filming the press conference they’re holding this Tuesday to present their findings as interpreted by a health panel.
One key piece of information from the meeting that I want to highlight that I learned after I filmed this short video is that West Virginia American Water is still pumping 4-MCHM out to their customers because they have not changed their filters. Dr. Whelton and the rest of the WV TAP made it very clear that they told WVAW they needed to change their filters because they were the source of chemicals still being distributed into the water system. The 4-MCHM was not originating from their intake or anywhere upstream, but their effluent (or output). So that means the source lies within the water plant.
As always, thanks for watching and stay tuned for more footage of the meeting, press conference, and interviews!
