About 40 Sherrodsville residents took advantage of the opportunity to learn about changes taking place in their small village last week.
The group met in the Lions Club with officials from Rettew Flowback Inc. (RFI), a firm setting up a water treatment facility on the former Lincoln and Things property on SR 39 just west of Dave’s Diner. Iron Eagle purchased 3.12 acres of land at the site and contracted with RFI to recycle water used in the hydraulic fracturing process of oil and gas wells. Iron Eagle owns a trucking company, which will be hauling the water into the plant. Iron Eagle officials were unable to attend the meeting due to a family emergency. RFI is no stranger to Carroll County or the oil and gas business.
The company operated a water treatment facility for Chesapeake Energy on the Shaw oil and gas well pad east of Carrollton for about nine months, according to Chris Foreman, RFI director of Water Treatment.

Mayor Ken Moffat organized the meeting and asked that questions be kept within three areas: Day-to-day operations, safety and emergency response. He kicked off the session by outlining plans for Sherrodsville Community Fire and Rescue, Sherrodsville Volunteer Fire Department Inc. and the village’s ambulance service to develop an emergency response plan.
