WVDEP posts IEI warehouse documents

PARKERSBURG — The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection has posted online 551 pages of documents supplied by Intercontinental Export Import about the inventory of their warehouse that was destroyed in a fire last month.

The information was provided by IEI in response to an order issued by the DEP to provide a detailed inventory of the materials that burned in the fire, sending noxious smoke into the air throughout the area.

“Neither DEP nor Incident Command has concluded that these documents provide a complete and accurate accounting of the site’s contents at the time of the fire. They instead reflect IEI’s answer when asked this critical question,” Lawrence Messina, director of communications for the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, said in an email announcing the posting.

The documents include 69 safety data sheets and a map of the warehouse. Click here to access the documents.

The DEP’s Environmental Enforcement section is also reviewing a proposed Plan of Corrective Action submitted by the company.
