A proposed settlement has been reached in the state investigation into West Virginia American Water’s role in a 2014 chemical spill and a resulting water crisis in the Charleston area. Thousands of gallons of a coal-cleaning agent leaked from a Freedom Industries storage tank into the Elk River in January 2014, leaving 300,000 people without water for nine days. The PSC said at a hearing Wednesday that it would review the proposal, then issue an order.
