West Virginia Community Struggles Without Reliable Water Access



In McDowell County, West Virginia, some residents say the water in their wells smell of rotten eggs. They’re forced to rely on mountain springs, rain or other methods.

  1. Y'all keep voting for them Republicans! They'll keep you ,poor angry and ignorant!

  2. I heard on Parler if you vote for Republicans just to own the libs…it will automatically fix this crisis…can anyone confirm this?

  3. I wonder how they vote ? Abortion, gays, trans vs I don’t have water …. Choices folks

  4. Dont forget about PFAS in WV water!!! Specifically c8/PFOAs/teflon! To which Manchin funded and gave way to pollute our ground water with their toxins known as dangerous since the 50s and got covered up because of the sake of the D&J!!!

  5. Get that fluoride filled public water 💦

  6. America is in a sad state. It’s all about the money right ?

  7. You get what you vote for. No sympathy.

  8. This is a sign of things to come pick up a copy of Grapes of Wrath for going to be living it pretty soon

  9. Thousands of American Indians… Have lip lock water… On the reservation for years… Now This story is news worthy.. Because it somewhere else in the USA ??
    SMH

  10. 🇨🇦🧊🇺🇦💧🩸🔔🔔🔔🔔🌐⚔💪💛💙❤🎻☘

  11. TRUE MIRACLE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE NATURE 🙏🙌✨♥👏💪

  12. The people whose water started to smell like rotten eggs need a hydro-geologist. Call the EPA, the state Department of Natural Resources, the county health department. Or did they try to make their well deeper and drilled into a bad layer? That can happen too.

  13. Someone please pollute that water accidently.

  14. WV is a beautiful mountain state with appalachian pride. I wish I was back home. Almost Heaven.

  15. Why not build an aquaduct?

  16. WHY DON'T THEY WHO ARE SPENDING $1O0 A MONTH TO BUY WATER, USE A FRACTION OF THAT TO BUY ONE OF THE MANY CERAMIC WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS LIKE BERKEY, WHICH WOULD CLEAN RAIN WATER FOR DRINKING JUST FINE? I hope a berkey rep sees this report and the one you are going to do about Flint, MI

  17. What a disgrace. Trillions spent on “Defense” while people go without water.

  18. Race and sexuality won't matter if we're all dead of dehydration ☠️. The longer the government ignores the real issues the harder it will be for our kids to live in this "first-world" country.

  19. But let’s keep focus on that damned wall and other stuff 🙄 INFRASTRUCTURE PEOPLE, THATS THE GOVT JOB no quit with your minimal govt bs

  20. When you vote for people that aren't working for the people, that is what you get. Vote for people who has a history of helping the people and not just spreading propaganda and lies just to be voted into office.

  21. Wow that’s sad we are not taking care of our own people

  22. Manchin, Cinema, and the Republicans are the only thing standing between this being fixed and not. West Virginia make it happen, don’t give your leaders a choice

  23. But we will send hundreds of millions of dollars to Palestine, Africa, Israel, Egypt, Syria. It adds up to billions each year. We pay China hundreds of billions in interest payments on the debt. But in America last, our folks literally come in last.

  24. Someone please secure water for mountain mama!

  25. Check out rain collection systems. You can store years worth of water just from rain collected from the runoff that comes off your roof.

  26. Yeah ! We spend billions bombing and rebuilding other countries . The American Tax payer pays for it ALL . But God forbid .. we rebuild our infrastructure . YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID !!! VOTE THEM ALL OUT !!!

  27. Can anyone dismiss or rule out hydrolic fracturing at the root cause?

  28. Maybe these people will vote against the gas companies vs for them

  29. No need for this in America !!! Biden take care of your own ! 🙏✌️

  30. To make matters worse many well and tap water sources deemed"safe" to drink isnt. Only decades later do they finally admit harmful ammounts of minerals after people get severe health problems such as Liver and kidney failure.

  31. Everybody should have water

  32. No more money!!!! We also love trump take my moooney

  33. "Buy a man eat fish, he day, teach fish man, to a lifetime" – Joe Biden

  34. HEY buy some water filters, YOU CAN drink your rain water, if you don't have lead paint or asphalt on your roof.
    We live on catchment water. Get a 10K gal tank and some better gutters. Home Depot sells the plastic gutters pretty cheap. 12v water pump on amazon less than $100.
    I haven't bought water in decades. The idea of buying water is as nuts as buying air or heat. Why? it's free.

    Now coal air rainwater in WV is another story, I'd triple up on the filters, maybe a UV set up.

  35. The white supremacists destroying his society are doing an impeccable job. This entire society is a demonic joke.

  36. This is laughable. LOTS of people would love to have a $100 water bill! Just because these people are pathetic losers does not mean we should feel bad for them. Hitch up your house and move it closer to water, don't act like anybody there doesn't live on wheels. Nobody "owes" you any water.

  37. And Yet Pelosi and Schumer want us to go soft on Joe Manchin. LoL pathetic party leaders..

  38. Still safer than living in Chicago
