Safety concerns over US chemical spill remain

Accountability issue far from settled, one month after water supply of Charlestown, West Virginia, was contaminated.

    It has been a month since the residents of Charlestown, in the US state of West Viriginia, found that their water was contaminated,

    A storage facility of Freedom Industries had spilled tens of thousands of litres of chemicals into the Elk river, contaminating the water supply of more than 300,000 people.

    But as Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from Charlestown, with the water still not safe to drink, locals remain concerned.
