PITTSBURGH, March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kroff, Inc., one of the fastest-growing water treatment companies in the United States, will participate as an exhibitor at the upcoming West Virginia Mine Drainage Task Force Symposium on March 29 and 30 in Morgantown, W.Va. The symposium is sponsored by the West Virginia Mine Drainage Task Force and the WV Coal Association.
"The West Virginia Mine Drainage Task Force has developed an evolving set of guidelines for responsible mining, which involves consulting companies like Kroff that have expertise in helping clients maintain environmental compliance with their discharge water," said Joel Johns, regional manager of Kroff, Inc. "We have the technology and personnel to perform treatability studies and develop customized treatment programs for each client site. Our involvement in this symposium enables Kroff to serve as a valuable resource to the mining industry in West Virginia."
The task force was formed in 1978 and assigned to investigate the acid mine drainage (AMD) problem associated with mining in West Virginia. Since then, the group has broadened its scope to include areas outside of West Virginia with AMD and other environmental issues. Members represent the coal mining industry, regulators, private consultants and scientists. The task force's main objectives are to keep current on new developments in research, regulations, and treatment and control practices.
