Emergency officials around the state continued to work to supply bottled and trucked-in water to those areas.
Working together, federal, state and local officials, have set up water distribution sites across the affected counties.
An updated list of those sites is available here, although there have been reports that some sites were running out of water: http://www.wvgazette.com/News/201401100166
At a news conference Friday evening the president of Freedom Industries, the company responsible for the spill, said he did not know how much chemical spilled into the river, how it leaked or when the water might be usable again.
He also gave statements that were in conflict with state officials as to when the leak was discovered, when it was reported and what actions were immediately taken.
The chemical, known as "crude MCHM," is used in coal processing.
Freedom Industries, which distributes chemicals from locations in Nitro and Charleston, merged with three other companies on Dec. 31, 2013.
