CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -

The Public Service Commission of West Virginia's Consumer Advocate Division wants the agency to continue requiring West Virginia American Water to submit quarterly reports on its service quality.

A 2011 order issued by the PSC requires the company to submit reports through the fourth quarter of 2013.

The Consumer Advocate Division asked the PSC Wednesday, Jan. 22 to continue the reporting requirement until further notice.

The division's motion cites a Jan. 9 chemical spill in Charleston that contaminated the water supply of 300,000 residents.

The 2011 order came in a case involving the water company's staffing levels.
