CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginians calling a state agency about environmental cleanup matters may have heard some dirty talk instead.
The state Department of Environmental Protection mistakenly published the wrong telephone number for its West Virginia Make It Shine program in a news release issued Monday.
Callers trying to get information about Adopt-A-Highway, an upcoming spring cleanup program or about reports on illegal dumps were instead greeted by the sounds of a woman moaning.
The toll-free number in the news release was one digit off. Instead of contacting the agency, callers connected to a recorded message that directed them to a 900 sex line.
D-E-P spokeswoman Jessica Greathouse says it's the first major goof she's made. She says everybody needs an editor.
