Energy Transfer's Rover agrees to pay $430,000 over W.Va. water violations

Rover Pipeline LLC agreed to pay a $430,000 penalty for water pollution violations resulting from construction activities for its 3.25-Bcf/d natural gas pipeline project.

The civil administrative penalty would be deposited in the state's water quality management fund, according to a West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, or DEP, consent order filed May 15 but made public June 12. The public comment period for the consent order extends until July 13, the Charleston Gazette-Mail in West Virginia reported.

The Energy Transfer Partners LP subsidiary also waived its right to appeal the order, the filing said. Rover is required to pay the penalty within 30 days of the order's effective date.

The department's personnel met with Rover representatives to discuss the terms and conditions of the order in March and April. The DEP identified several instances of Rover violating its water pollution control permit during "land disturbance activity" for the project since April 2017. The violations include creating sediment deposits on the bottom of streams, improper implementation of perimeter controls, failing to maintain erosion control devices and allowing sediment-laden water to leave the construction site.

Rover previously received two cease-and-desist orders from the DEP, the most recent of which was lifted in May. The pipeline developer is seeking approval to start up two laterals, a supply connector line and a section of mainline, but the decision from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission hinges on Rover's completion of environmental restoration work.
