Richard McCoy of Huntington writes, "In 1953, my sixth grade class visited this aeration facility of the Huntington Water Corporation. It was located on Route 2, next to the water intake, just upstream of Guyandotte. It is now the location of West Virginia American Water offices. Tap water from the river, often, had a bad taste, if not aerated. So, it was sprayed in the air, before sedimentation and chlorination. In the winter when it froze, the tap water would taste bad. Now, the taste is removed with carbon filters."

We have a treasure trove of old negatives and photos at The Herald-Dispatch. Some of the images, we know. Others, we have no idea.
