Jan 20, 2014

Evansville officials say testing of the Ohio River has found no measurable amount of the chemical spill that contaminated the water supply in Charleston, West Virginia.

What’s left of the chemical plume reached the Evansville area late Sunday night. Allen Mounts of the Water and Sewer Utility tells WNIN News that testing of the city's intake water from the river measured less than 1 part per billion of the chemical as of late Monday morning. He says the chemical has diluted dramatically during its 700 mile journey from Charleston to Evansville.
