What Happened In West Virginia Could Happen In California, Affecting Millions of Lives

???????????????????????????Contamination of water in seven counties of West Virginia resulted in a declaration of a state of emergency as water is trucked in to meet the needs of 100,000 people and businesses.

The corporation responsible for the pollution failed to properly manage the containment of the toxic chemical and did not give warning to the people living in the contaminated area.
