Settlement prohibits unconventional wastewater, reduces discharge and protects Allegheny River
(Pittsburgh) – Clean Water Action and Waste Treatment Corporation (WTC) of Warren, PA agreed upon a settlement today of a federal lawsuit filed by Clean Water Action in October 2013. Clean Water Action alleged in its lawsuit that WTC violated the Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, and the state Clean Streams Law through their continued discharge of up to 200,000 gallons per day of gas drilling wastewater into the Allegheny River in western Pennsylvania.

The Allegheny River belongs to you. It is a source of drinking water and used for swimming, boating, and fishing. We share your commitment to protecting the Allegheny River. That is why we took legal action when we learned that discharges of gas drilling wastewater from Waste Treatment Corporation (WTC) were harming the Allegheny’s water quality and aquatic life. A month after Clean Water Action filed a federal suit against WTC, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is finally taking action.
