CLARKSBURG — To many, environmental and fiscal welfare may seem incompatible goals.
However, it is the convergence of those two spheres that has fueled the success of the Private Project of the Year as selected by The Exponent Telegram’s Editorial Board.
This year’s project is Antero Resources’ wastewater treatment complex in Doddridge County.
Anne Blankenship, executive director of the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association, said she has high hopes for the facility.
“Antero’s Clearwater facility is good for the environment and the economy,” she said. “The state-of-the-art project will eliminate the need for an estimated 60 wastewater disposal wells over its lifetime and reduce water truck travel by more than 10 million miles annually.”
