DEP inspectors describe early scene at Freedom leak site  
- News -
The Charleston Gazette - West Virginia News and Sports -

The DEP officials asked Kolb to show them around the facility. When they went outside, an employee asked to speak to Farrell. After that conversation, Farrell told the DEP officials there was a problem, and led them to tank 396.

There, the DEP officials said, they found a 400-square-foot pool of chemical that had leaked from the tank into a block containment area. Pressure from the material leaking out of the tank created what DEP officials called an "up-swelling," or an artesian well, like a fountain of chemical coming up from the pool.

here's a thoroughly done article from Charleston Gazette

Anyone have a semi-plausible theory on why Teva went up 6.71% today?

because the fix is in, you made a wise choice

is it a trade, or an investment?

legally, the Koch Brothers divested, merged, withdrew etc

ergo

no perps

Koch Brothers?

yep, via GP Chemicals

and no MSDS available for what was spewed

one of over 10,000 such untested chemicals being driven into our eco system, including the fracking stuff

BOGO Coal Cleaner Chemicals

Ice a tall glass, pour on some untested stuff, add some Seven Up and enjoy!

the current owners of the storage facility were recently running a sports bar in Charleston, took ownership of the company late (very late) last year, about the end of December

can you say bag holder?
