Comment on the Water Quality Impacts of the Rockwool Facility by 12/20
The proposed Rockwool manufacturing facility would produce mineral wool insulation. The facility, owned by parent company Roxul, would discharge approximately 14,000 gallons of wastewater a day for treatment in the City of Charles Town’s wastewater treatment plant.
The volume of wastewater discharged by the facility and the capabilities of existing infrastructure to treat it concerns WV Rivers. Overflow untreated wastewater, or inadequately treated wastewater would flow into Evitts Run within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. View our fact sheet and suggested comments here.
