CONSOL Energy held a dedication ceremony Thursday for a new $200 million water treatment facility.

The Northern West Virginia Advanced Water Treatment Plant took three years to plan and build. It's located just outside Mannington.

There are three stages to the facility, including a water gathering system, the treatment plant and an onsite landfill.

"This is a state of the art facility that we've constructed and it's designed to treat water from three of our very important northern West Virginia mining operations. We gather the water at those facilities, we transport it through pipelines to this facility and we treat it and when it is completely treated and clean we discharge it to the environment," said John Owsiany, of CONSOL Energy.

The treatment plant gathers water from Robinson Run, Loveridge and Blacksville number two mines.

It can process five million gallons a day.
