Coal company shuts down, town now no longer has water


This isn’t a big story, but it is a story of the consequences of the Obama’s determination to destroy the coal industry. Jobs lost and the “other little things” that go with living in a company town. Once in awhile it’s a good thing to put a face on the misery that is being caused for little or no reason. Especially this time of year.

Residents of Prenter Camp, W.Va. woke up one morning to no showers or tap water. The Boone County township had its water supply shut off with no notice or explanation, and is now uncertain where to turn for a solution.

The water supply used to be guaranteed through a relationship with the local coal mining company, which has since gone out of business. As reported on the Metro News website:

The power bill for the pump house… had always been paid by Patriot Coal. Patriot is now bankrupt and gone. The company which shut off the power this week was ERPS Oil… ERPS is an oil and gas exploration company. [ERPS] paid the bill for a couple of months after Patriot Coal was dissolved, but apparently stopped paying this week.

“If we don’t get some emergency help to get water put back in this is a health concern,” she said. “We can’t take showers, we can’t flush our commode, we’ll need drinking water eventually.  This is something that really needs to be jumped on, but it seems like we’re not getting any help.”

Bonus information why the above is happening. Regulations.

The Daily Caller reports:

An Obama administration official has said that the new clean coal rules could increase electricity prices by as much as 80 percent.
Dr. Julio Friedmann, the deputy assistant secretary for clean coal at the Department of Energy, told House lawmakers that the first generation of carbon capture and storage technology would increase wholesale electricity prices by “70 or 80 percent.”
The Obama administration’s plan to fight global warming includes limiting carbon dioxide from new power plants. In order for new coal-fired power plants to be built, however, they would need to install costly carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.

    This is what Barry refers to as smart. It’s only smart in his stupid head.

    They say that you get the government you deserve and I cannot help but think about all the coal union people that voted for Obama even after he promised to shut the industry down. Perhaps they get it now but it is too late now.

      I predict they don’t get it and will look to Ponderosa ass to bail them out. Never underestimate the foolishness of the american voter. Besides they know it’s Bush’s fault. 🚽

      One of the buildings that isn’t getting water is the Union Hall. Unions and Obama finished the coal business.

    Not to worry because POTHS Hillary Clinton who is for the little people will surely pay the town’s electric bill from Bubba’s multi million or is it multi billion dollar Clinton Initiative slush fund. One would think that a state that kept a democrat Grand Kugel in powers for 50 years would be in far better shape. But it seems that Senator Robert Byrd didn’t share his plunder with his loyal constituency.

      Excellent point. Somehow the wealth just didn’t get spread around, but then again, it takes a village.

        You’re so right, Peter and Bunkerville…
        I know this isn’t a popular viewpoint but it irks me every time I hear of young people at church groups going to Europe or Mexico to help build houses, etc. We have SO MUCH POVERTY here…and yet their hearts are led by their leaders to go ‘there’…I think it’s good to have a heart open to the world, but charity should at least START here.

        Especially Bill Gates who thanks to him and his crappy computer software and operating systems cost our company tens of thousands of dollars. Yet he can give away billions to foreign countries.

        Though I may not be a biblical scholar I do believe somewhere in the Good Book it reads “Charity begins at home.”
        P.S. This past year my neice and nephew along with their and many other Catholic youth group around the country, you know that religion that survived the Nazi’s and commies but may not survive the NWO commies now calling themselves Progressives, went to rural Virginia to rebuild homes and businesses trying to recover from a devestating flood while continuing to wait since then for FEMA dollars which seem to have lost their way. English speaking Christians need not apply!

        Same with New Jersey. Never got the help they were promised. Better to give the money to Black lives matter and other Community organizers. Sorry, wrong shade,.

        Good for your niece and nephew…THAT’s the spirit! “Charity begins at home” isn’t Scriptural…I just GOogled: “But how shall we expect charity towards others, when we are uncharitable to ourselves? ‘Charity begins at home,’ is the voice of the world;” – Sir Thomas Browne, 1642
        I wasn’t sure about that, either…
        And I’ve heard FEMA dollars have been VERy slow in coming ….we’re too busy giving big money to Iran, after all, dontchaknow!?🙂

        Thanks for the correction Geez. I know people “down the shore” (we don’t say beach here in Jersey) still waiting. Staten Islander New Yorkers are in really rough shape waiting. The cost of one Moosh vacation could have taken care of everyone.

        I heard this Hawaii trip cost $3.7 million…Air Force One costs something like $217,000 an HOUR🙂
        Yes, a lot of that could help Americans………..but, hey, he’s GOT to play golf.
        Obviously, nobody begrudges a president some free time, but at THIS COST???
