    As Appalachian coal production continues its drastic decline, West Virginia’s coal-producing counties are  not only losing people as lifelong residents are forced to flee their homes in order to find work, but in many cases, they’re also relinquishing millions of dollars from their budgets.

WHEELING (AP) — Wheeling planners are considering a company's proposal to open a plant that would recycle wastewater from natural gas drilling.

The Wheeling Planning Commission is expected to make a decision on GreenHunter Water's application at a meeting on Monday.

Commissioners had declined to consider the project at their June and July meetings, saying they needed additional information.

GreenHunter interim CEO Jonathan Hoopes tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that the company believes it has now met the commission's requirements.
