West Virginia well water smells smoky after earthquake
My wife and I both took a shower last night
and we both noticed a strong smell of smoke
in the shower.
I turned on the kitchen faucet and ran water
over my hand and smelled it, and it had a woody,
smoky smell.
There had been several lighning storms yesterday,
but no fires, and no smoky smell in the air.

We are about 30 miles from the epicenter of
the small 2.7 earthquake yesterday in Gilmer County.

BTW this wasn't a sulphur smell, but a woody smoky
smell.

The area of the earthquake was also the area with
trouble over fracking, but not sure if there's a
connection.

Re: West Virginia well water smells smoky after earthquake
Wonder if the water isn't being contaminated with coal particulates or coal gasses that had previously been walled off by mineral deposits left by the water? A high carbon content might produce a similar smell. Suggest you take a sample in an ultra clean glass bottle to your county or state water agency.

If it doesn't clear up soon we will.
It has a distinctly woody smell.
If coal gases smell woody, I guess that could be it.
Everyone up here in the mountains burns wood for heat,
if they don't have propane, and that's exactly what
it smells like.
They are fracking fairly close to us, but never noticed
any change in the water until yesterday.

Water takes some time to work it's way up through the water table so maybe not quake or fracking related but I'd at least keep drinking and cooking with it to a minimum until you know the scoop. Being in W Va I bet I don't need to tell you about carcinogens from coal.

We get all our drinking and cooking water from a
crystal clear mountain spring nearby.
People come from many miles away to get it.
I wouldn't drink my well water.
The smell seems to be disappearing.
Very strange. We've had our well water get murky
but never had it smell before.

Re: West Virginia well water smells smoky after earthquake
We started having the same problem this summer (2013) but we live in Ontario, Canada in a rural area surrounded by forest and farming.

It's been very disturbing because it irritates my lungs when I shower and makes our laundry smell earthy and smokey.

Very strange. I plan to get our water tested next week because the smell has come back. Seems we get pockets of this...

Our well is a deep drilled well.

Springwater, Ontario
