Ohio Drinking Water Contaminated with Acid

2400 People Affected

Residents of Bellaire, Ohio had their worst fears confirmed earlier today, when officials released information that 40 pounds of acid had been added to the city's water supply, albeit accidentally.

According to media reports, a water supplier accidentally gave workers hydrochloric acid instead of fluoride, a mistake that went unnoticed until Monday morning. Fire hydrants were opened to clean the water system, while residents were urged not to use the tap water, and classes were dismissed early at the local high school.

Officials allegedly pronounced the water safe at 12:30 P.M.
