Water Quality is Long-Term Task at Derailment Scene

EAST PALESTINE, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – After the on ground cleanup is done, there will be long-term studies of the soil in the area of the wreckage.

That’ll be to determine what chemicals may leach into the local ground water table.

The Ohio EPA says fish kill in a nearby stream has fortunately been minimal so far.

They say there is no threat to the village’s public drinking water supply.
