Plaintiffs Add Yeager Airport, Eastman Chemical, West Virginia-American Water and American Water Works to the Lawsuit of Chemical Leak

Yeager Airport has been added to a lawsuit that now claims the airport's poor management of a construction project contributed to the January chemical leak that left hundreds of thousands of West Virginians without usable water for more than a week. In a consolidated class-action complaint filed June 20, 2014 in federal court, plaintiffs allege the airport's runway extension project, which began in 2004, caused stormwater runoff to disturb the Freedom Industries tank farm and eventually led to the failure of the tank that leaked MCHM. Dozens of lawsuits have been filed since the coal-cleaning chemical leaked into the region's water supply from Freedom Industries' Etowah River Terminal tank farm on the Elk River - directly below Yeager Airport. The new complaint also now names Triad Engineering as a defendant. That company worked for Yeager on the extension project. Also, according to the complaint, multiple citations were handed out for violating the construction permit for failure to install traps to collect stormwater runoff. The lawsuit also names Eastman Chemical Co., which makes 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, known as "Crude MCHM. It is being sued for, plaintiffs say, ignoring studies that prove the dangers of the chemical. The lawsuit also claims West Virginia American Water and its parent company American Water Works, should have recognized the risk of having the chemical company just upriver from its intake.
