CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A U.S. House committee is holding a hearing in Charleston on the Jan. 9 chemical spill that tainted the water supply in nine counties.
The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday at the Kanawha County Courthouse.
The witness list includes the president of West Virginia American Water, state and county officials, the chairman of the U.S. Chemical Safety Board and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.
The spill left 300,000 people banned from using tap water for up to 10 days.
Two W.Va. members sit on the committee — Nick Rahall, the committee's top Democrat, and Republican Shelley Moore Capito.
