West Virginia leaders are all about cutting corporate and business taxes to improve the business climate. I submit that there's nothing worse for the business climate than bad water. Perhaps we would be wiser to use corporate tax dollars to monitor and correct their bad practices.
I am a Charleston water customer and it used to be, when I bent over my sink and splashed water on my face, it had that sulphury kind of smell. Then, here lately, it has been a nice candy smell, kind of like licorice. Now, all of a sudden it smells like sulphur again. When I look at my information from the water company, I don't see anything about flavor options. Does anyone know how I can change back to licorice flavor?

It is easy to criticize out of context.
