Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D-WV) is asking federal authorities to do further study on the possible health effects caused by the chemical spill that occurred near Charleston, West Virginia, according to a report by CNN.

On January 9th, 10,000 gallons of the chemical MCHM spilled from the storage facility Freedom Industries into the Elk River, just upstream of the West Virginia American Water Company’s water treatment plan at Charleston, WV. The leak contaminated water for 300,000 residents in nine counties.
