Update: The Greater Cincinnati Water Works shut down its valves about midnight Wednesday morning after detecting the Elk River contamination in samples at the Meldahl dam. The spill then reached the Miller Treatment Plant about 7am Wednesday. The Water Works is working closely with the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) to track the spill and conduct ongoing water sampling analysis. It anticipates the bulk of the spill to pass through the area within the next 24-to-48 hours, depending on river and weather conditions.
Update 1/13/14 at 1:55 PM: Miami University spokeswoman Claire Wagner said in an e-mail because the case involves a current student, the school will not comment on the complaint other than to deny the allegations.
Wagner said Miami is committed to the success of all of its students and Miami is committed to equal access.
