James Hoyer of the West Virginia National Guard said testing near the water treatment facility has consistently been below one part per million for 24 hours, a key step officials needed before they can lift the ban.

The all-clear was given after new tests showed levels back well below one part per million, but General James Hoyer with the National Guard says they're now focused on a new criteria.
"We're going to a level 100 times below that for sample testing that we do in this next phase," said Hoyer.
According to the Center for Disease Control, ten parts per billion is a safe level for pregnant women to be able to drink. Right now, Hoyer and his team are seeing that at West Virginia American Water's plant in Charleston, but there's still work to do in the outlying areas.
The National Guard won't leave until they see the results everywhere.
Hoyer says he recognizes the anger from customers, but assures that officials have just as much at stake.
"People who are my family, who are the guard's family, who we love; we love the people of West Virginia and we're frustrated like everybody else," said Hoyer.
In the meantime, he encourages patience and trust in the experts at the CDC, while offering praise for the work all communities are doing in coming together.
"West Virginians have responded extremely well, in a difficult period, like they always do," said Hoyer.

James Hoyer, adjutant general of the West Virginia National Guard, said the project was about allowing "men and women in West Virginia to live here, raise their families and be a part of the national mission."
"Whether it's the national security mission, fighting our wars overseas, or whether it's the homeland security mission in protecting people here and responding to national disasters," Hoyer said. "It's about, also, cost-effective solutions to national security in a time when our nation needs to reduce costs, but can't afford to reduce our national defense capability."
Soldiers at the base will be driving Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, known as MRAP. The vehicles are designed to withstand impact from Improvised Explosive Devices and other new elements of the war in Afghanistan and similar style battles.
As the land is further mined, more land will be turned over for use, Hoyer said. The land will be adaptable to all sorts of terrain and could potentially include a shooting range, he added.
In addition to a basic obstacles course for the vehicles, Hoyer said there was an additional 20 miles of trails.
According to Hoyer, a National Guard member working part-time costs the taxpayer about 33 cents for every dollar it would cost for other military personnel. A full-time guard member still costs just about 85 to 90 percent of what it costs to use other military personnel.
He said in addition to other costs, the National Guard has fewer overhead costs, such as those associated with base operations, because their soldiers live in the community and shop the same stores and drive the same roads as the public.
Manchin said he and other members of the West Virginia delegation are fighting to ensure that the National Guard is given a larger role in the national picture.

James A. Hoyer, the deputy commander for installations and homeland defense and the center's overseer. The federal government has spent $24 million on the facility, the Center for National Response, which has trained about 23,000 people, he said.
Colonel Hoyer said his crew could create a variety of challenging locales and circumstances, from mountain caves like those used by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan to a subway disaster, complete with an old trolley from Boston's Green Line. The National Guard "owns the only subway station in West Virginia," he said.
As he spoke, about two dozen members of the New York City task force were still deep in the tunnel, prying thick chunks of concrete off legs of one man (a mannequin) and lifting a heavyset woman (flesh and blood) onto a bright orange body board.
