Connecting To Clean Tap Water And Limiting Coal Dust Exposure On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, some residents in Wyoming County are finding relief thanks to new water line installation projects. We visit Bud Mountain to hear how the new line is affecting residents.

Also, in this show, the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration recently announced new steps it would take to limit miners’ exposure to rock dust in coal mines. But Wes Addington, an attorney at the Appalachian Citizens Law Center, says few miners in central Appalachia are taking advantage of the law.
