Herbicide Contamination And Oil Well Wastewater, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, reporter Chris Schulz spoke with a master gardener from Monongalia County about difficulties with his crops — and two plant scientists who say it’s likely the result of herbicide contamination.

Also in this show, Pittsburgh-based public radio program The Allegheny Front dives into challenges with oil well wastewater being dumped onto local roads.

Plus, Briana Heaney reports that a new study found calls to poison control centers now more often lead to hospitalizations and deaths.
