Antero has built an extensive network of freshwater pipelines and impoundments across its acreage to provide a reliable source of freshwater to our active locations and reduce the number of water trucks traversing local roads in and around the communities where Antero operates.
The protection of water quality within all areas of Antero operations is of the utmost importance. Water samples are analyzed for a list of parameters that goes above and beyond the parameters required by regulation in both WV and OH. Sample results are shared with the landowners, state regulators, and archived electronically by Antero.
Antero has reduced our use of certain chemicals related to scale reduction and biocide control (by decreasing use of treated water during completions activities). The water produced during this process is then subject to Antero’s water recycling and water management programs.
