Gadsden Water Works File Lawsuit
Gadsden's Water Works and Sewer Board filed a lawsuit against 32 carpet and textile companies and chemical suppliers. TV24 spoke to the law firm representing Gadsden Water Works and Sewer Board, today. Beasley Allen attorney Rhon Jones says they are looking to going to trial in couple of years from now or some other form of resolution before that. He says the water and sewer board did not put chemicals in the city’s water supply. The lawsuit, filed yesterday in Etowah County Circuit Court, says the companies, situated around Dalton, Georgia, are responsible for two chemicals in the city's water supply, which has resulted in the health advisories.
