FILE - In this Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, file photo, workers inspect an area outside a retaining wall around storage tanks where a chemical leaked into the Elk River at Freedom Industries storage facility in Charleston, W.Va. Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Tom Aluise says inspectors found five violations Monday at a Nitro, W.Va., site where Freedom Industries moved its coal-cleaning chemicals after last Thursday's spill. Inspectors found that, like the Charleston facility where the leak originated, the Nitro site lacked appropriate secondary containment. In Charleston, a porous containment wall allowed the chemical to ooze into the Elk River. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File) less
