CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A public symposium on water system safety is set for next month at the University of Charleston.

The panel discussion was organized by Advocates for a Safe Water System, a community organization formed in response to the January chemical spill that contaminated drinking water for about 300,000 West Virginians in nine counties. The event is set for the evening of Nov. 6 at the university’s Erma Byrd Gallery.

Three experts from the health, utility and environmental fields will offer their insights and answer questions about the safety of West Virginia’s water systems and how to improve them.

Residents interested in attending the free event may register in advance at https://bit.ly/safeH20 or by calling 304-237-3802.
