"CONSOL Agrees To Stream Cleanup Settlement"

"CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- CONSOL Energy has signed on to a legal settlement that marks the first time a coal company has agreed to clean up conductivity pollution associated with a valley fill, an environmental group lawyer said Wednesday."

"Under the deal, CONSOL could eventually be forced to install an expensive treatment system to clean up water quality violations in Boardtree Branch related to the subsidiary Fola Coal's Surface Mine No. 3 in Clay and Nicholas counties."
