Northeast Ohio Boy Scouts send more than 2,700 gallons of water to W. Va. residents

ASHLAND, Ohio - Boy Scouts in Northeast Ohio sent over 2,700 gallons of clean drinking water to Charleston, West Virginia after a chemical spill forced residents under a boil advisory for five days.

Two trucks carrying the water left the Ashland Boy Scouts headquarters, where troops from Ashland, Crawford, Erie, Huron, Lorain, Marion, Morrow, Richland and Wyandot counties had collected water since Saturday, early Tuesday morning.

Though the boil advisory had been lifted in Charleston, many surrounding communities are still dealing with unclean water, the Boy Scouts Heart of Ohio Council said.
