CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia environmental officials have proposed a $93,000 fine on an Antero Resources natural gas company for polluting waterways.

In a consent order, state Department of Environmental Protection and Antero Midstream LLC agreed earlier this month on the proposed fines for northern West Virginia pipeline activity.

The order says Antero pipeline projects in Ritchie, Pleasants, Doddridge and Tyler caused pollution in nearby waterways in 2013 and 2014, among other issues.

Antero Resources is headquartered in Denver, Colorado.
