Family's water well contaminated with methane gas

One Pike County family is without running water due to high concentrations of methane gas in their well.

The owner, Denise Howard, says the water has been contaminated for several months and it physically burns when it comes into contact with skin.

Howard says several other people have had similar problems in the past.

Pike County's Judge Executive visited the area today, and said he will do everything possible to fix the problem.
