ZUMBROTA, Minn. — Minnesota-based company WaterFilters.NET will be sending 200-300 free refrigerator water filters from its FridgeFilters.com website and online store to customers impacted by the chemical spill in West Virginia this month, according to an article by KSTP-TV5.
The chemical spill from Freedom Industries on the Elk River on Jan. 9 ultimately affected 300,000 people, the article noted.

According to the article, Mike Yanke of WaterFilters.NET said that filters may help in the process of flushing the lines.
