WVC 31 - 2 - 10 §31-2-10. Watering troughs for livestock.
All railroads maintaining stations that are shipping points for livestock, where there are as many as one thousand head shipped in any one year, shall wherever practicable place within the stock pens owned or controlled by such railroad company suitable watering troughs which shall, at all times during the time stock is being shipped from the station, be supplied with pure drinking water such as stock will drink. It shall be considered practicable where there are waterworks from which water can be obtained (city or otherwise) by piping not to exceed one fourth of a mile.

Any railroad company which refuses to comply with this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be fined not less than fifty dollars nor more than one hundred dollars for each offense. And each day that such pens are without water during the shipping season shall be considered a separate offense.
