FAIRMONT — A water technology company has filed a civil lawsuit against Consolidation Coal Co., claiming Consol hasn’t paid a $ 4.7 million outstanding bill.
On Tuesday, Veolia Water Technologies (VWS) out of Township, Pennsylvania, filed suit against Consol in the Marion County Circuit Court claiming that Consol refuses to pay its final bill for work VWS did with the Northern West Virginia Coal Mine Water Treatment Plant near Mannington.
VWS claims Consol has $ 4,748,049 outstanding, due and owed to the water technology company.
VWS is claiming a lien against Consol’s property to secure payment of the amount due.
The suit states that VWS is requesting that the court enter an order granting VWS judgment against Consol in the amount of $ 3,748,049, partial amount owed, plus pre and post-judgment interest.
VWS claims that it achieved all requirements under the contract for the final acceptance. The suit states VWS’s work on the water treatment plant resulted in a successful project and a state-of-the-art water treatment facility for Consol.
On July 21, 2014, VWS filed a Notice of Mechanic’s Lien for $ 3,748,049 against Consol.
According to the suit, the water treatment plant began being built in 2011 and was completed around April 2013 and passed a 72-hour performance test in May 2013. It states the project in building the water treatment plant cost around $ 95.8 million.
