Lawsuit Filed Against Childers Oil Company

A Letcher County resident files a civil complaint against Childers Oil Company.

The complaint was filed in Letcher Circuit Court and it calls for a jury trial.

This comes just more than one week after petroleum contamination forced officials to issue a non-consumption order for several communities.

Crews are flushing the distribution system, trying to get the petroleum out of water lines that serve homes and businesses, but it could be another day or two before the restrictions are lifted.
