  • Small West Virginia city notifies customers of elevated THM levels (WBOY, March 14)
    Commentary: Consumer confidence in this water system probably took a hit after reading a city official's comments (if reported accurately!): "City officials said Wednesday the water could have been contaminated for at least five years.  'What do you want me to do? Lie to them?' said Frank Robinette, the city manager. 'We can't fix it!'  But Robinette said there's little to worry about.  'You could drink this water with this violation for up to 70 years before it could have an effect,' he said."
