SOUNDBITE (English) Bonnie Wreman, resident of Kanawha county, describing how she continued forgetting not to wash her hands:"Same way when you go into the bathroom and get out. Automatically, you wash your hands and I'd go do it without thinking. I done it about three (times), until I put the bags over it, so I could see them bags. And then that reminded me, 'don't put your hands in that water there.7. SOUNDBITE (English) Deno Stanley, owner of Adelphia Sports Bar and Grille:"It's impacted us greatly because we can't open, we can't serve food, what we're trying to do to offset that is, we're opening, selling legal beverages only and chips, for the customers. But you know, we have payrolls like any other business. We have payroll on Monday due, so it's pretty drastic right now, so we just try to kind of 'ham and egg it' and get through this."8.

The only allowed use of the water was for flushing toilets. The order applies to about 300,000 people.Thirty-two people sought treatment at area hospitals for symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Of those, four people were admitted to the Charleston Area Medical Center. Their conditions were not immediately known, Allison Adler of the Department of Health and Human Resources said Saturday.Federal authorities, including the U.S. Chemical Safety Board, opened an investigation into Thursday's spill. The Chemical Safety Board said Saturday that its investigative team is scheduled to arrive in West Virginia on Monday.
