CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- After the chemical spill early last month that contaminated the water supply of more than 300,000 West Virginians, the flushing process began and out of that came a renewed call for in-home water testing.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has asked his team to look at how it could work.

On Monday night, the team met to talk about their options as to how the tests would be paid for and who would do the testing.

WSAZ.com spoke exclusively with state Sen. Ron Stollings. He told us the team has been working together to try to get West Virginians affected by the water crisis back to their daily lives.

"This has been a tragic event, and we just want to make sure that the people of West Virginia know that their water is safe," Stollings said.

It is important to note that these discussions are in the beginning stages.

When there is more information about in-home water testing, we will bring that to you as soon as we learn more.
