The Freedom Industries chemical spill that poisoned tap water for some 300,000 residents in West Virginia might have been larger than previously reported. The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection released an update on Monday after Freedom Industries said 10,000 gallons of industrial chemicals leaked into the Elk River from its containment units. The chemical storage and processing company had previously said 7,500 gallons had escaped. The spill was first reported on January 9th, after people living near the Elk River noticed a strange liquorice odor coming from the water.
