Massey Energy Operation Ordered to Shut Down

More Coal Slurry Problems For Massey

The Associated Press is reporting a subsidiary of anti-union Massey Energy has experienced a second blackwater spill at its Logan County, WV operations in as many weeks.

Department of Environmental Protection officials told the AP a broken slurry line at Massey's Bandmill facility near McConnell sent an unknown amount of blackwater into the Right Fork of Rum Creek this morning. The spill is reported to have affected about a-mile-and-a-half of the stream.

The agency's Division of Mining and Reclamation issued an imminent harm cessation order against Bandmill. The operation must be shut down until the broken line is repaired and the creek clears.
