What We Do‎ > ‎

Reducing Industrial Pollution

WVRC works to ensure that companies that foul our water through coal mining and other industries are responsible for their pollution, and that they treat and restore water to a safe and healthy state. 

We coordinate statewide efforts to regulate and enforce water protections related to “fracking” and deep horizontal gas drilling, industrial water withdrawal, waste management and disposal, and surface and ground contamination. 

WVRC is your watchdog against industries violating their water pollution permits and placing the public at risk.
