Erin Brockovich to investigate chemical leak

Posted:

CHARLESTON (WVVA) -- The chemical spill is sparking outside investigation.

Consumer advocate, Erin Brockovich, and her team are looking into the situation in the Elk River.

She's best known for building a case against Pacific Gas and Electric Company of California in the 90s, even though she wasn't formally educated in law.

You may recall Julia Roberts portraying her in the film "Erin Brockovich."

Brockovich announced her team's West Virginia investigation on her website.
