MANCHIN SPEAKS WITH EPA ADMINSTRATOR PRUITT, MAYOR JOYCE, COMMISSIONER COLOMBO ABOUT WOOD COUNTY FIRE
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today spoke with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, Parkersburg Mayor Tom Joyce and Wood County Commissioner Jimmy Colombo about the industrial fire on the outskirts of Parkersburg at the former Ames Tool Plant.
“Today I spoke with Administrator Pruitt to make him aware of the latest on the situation in Wood County and ask that he ensure the EPA is providing any equipment and technical assistance necessary to resolve the air and water issues that may arise as a result of the fire. I also spoke with Mayor Joyce and Commissioner Colombo asking them to keep me abreast of their specific needs so that I can ensure they are being met at the federal level. I will continue to do everything possible to ensure our state and local officials are fully supported by federal agencies, and I thank the many local emergency responders who have been working tirelessly to stop the fire and protect the public,” Senator Manchin said.
