Water Quality

Antero has been testing water sources near our operations for over a decade. The protection of water quality within all areas of our operations is of the utmost importance. Antero assesses (with landowner permission) domestic water wells, springs, ponds, or streams within a 2,000-foot radius of the well pad in West Virginia and within a 2,500-foot radius of the well pad in Ohio, which goes beyond the state-required sampling distance of a 1,500-foot radius in West Virginia and Ohio. Water samples are collected by third-party environmental consultants and analyzed at state-certified laboratories. Water samples are analyzed for a list of parameters that go beyond those required by regulation in both WV and OH. Sample results are shared with the landowners and state regulators, and archived electronically by Antero.
