Danny Jones Quotes

You can’t imagine what it’s like to live in one of the nine counties effected in West Virginia …what it’s like to not have any water except to flush commodes and put out fires….It has devastated this area … everything is closing … no restaurant is allowed to open…, the people are in their homes, the schools are closed. You’re not supposed to take showers and certainly not supposed to drink the tap water…. I smelled it and tasted it, and I knew something was very wrong.

 
Context
Freedom Industries, which makes chemicals for the mining industry, polluted the water supply of the entire 9 county region in WV when the 40,000 gallon tank that was supposedly safe as a holding tank for dangerous chemicals gave way and the chemicals were not then stopped or contained as they were supposed to have been by the containment grading and landscaping. The chemicals flowed down hill to the river which in turn polluted the entire water supply of Charleston, West Virginia and the 9 surrounding counties.
