Louisville Water Company says no toxins detected the water

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) -Louisville Water Company sent out an advisory Saturday morning that it had successfully managed the trace amounts of the MCHM chemical in the Ohio River and there are no detections of it in the Metro's drinking water.

MCHM spilled into the Elk River, January 9th, in West Virginia and passed through Louisville Friday evening. On Friday evening water scientists from Louisville Water detected only trace amounts in the Ohio River. By Saturday morning, the company says there is NO MCHM in water produced at the Louisville plant.

According to the company, scientists sampled river water throughout the week and developed a treatment strategy using carbon at the Crescent Hill Filtration Plan. Friday afternoon, the water looked visibly darker from Air 3.

The carbon treatment will continue at the Crescent Hill Reservoir through Sunday.
