Russell Prince holds a photograph on Monday Nov. 15, 2010 in Charleston, W.Va., of his 4-year-old daughter, Chasety, who died in 1996 of a kidney tumor he believes was caused by well water contaminated with coal slurry. More than 700 current and former residents of Rawl, Lick Creek, Sprigg and Merrimac claim their water was contaminated and their health wrecked after Rawl Sales & Processing pumped 1.4 billion gallons of toxic coal slurry into worked-out underground mines.
