ANMOORE, W.Va. — An Anmoore company is being investigated in connection with a chemical spill on the Elk Creek on Thursday.
The state Department of Environment Protection said in a Tuesday statement that it inspected an outflow structure at Amsted Graphite Material in Anmoore and found additional material leaking.
Officials from the Clarksburg Water Board reported the spill was estimated to be 10 miles long. Unconfirmed reports indicate the chemical was flowing over booms as far as seven miles away.
All the booms were replaced on Tuesday and officials said daily inspections will continue until the spill is mitigated.
Clarksburg officials have confirmed the spill did not have any effect on their water supply.
