Two Kentucky water systems shut intakes as chemical plume passes in Ohio River

Two Kentucky water systems temporarily shut down their intakes for a time early Monday as a plume of the chemical spilled last week in West Virginia passed in the Ohio River. The cities of Ashland and Russell stopped drawing water from the Ohio after the chemical — 4-methycyclohexane methanol, or MCHM — reached Ashland at 5:30 a.m., according to the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection.
