Roanoke-based Fountain Quail Water Management LLC announced Tuesday that it has developed a new portable system for treating the wastewater created during the oil and gas drilling process.

The Rover system can fit on a 30-foot by 55-foot area and runs off generator power if utility access is not available, the company said in a news release.

Fountain Quail is a subsidiary of Aqua-Pure Ventures Inc., a Canadian public company that trades under the symbol AQE on the Canadian TSX Venture Exchange.

⿿The mobile configuration is suitable for virtually any drilling location,⿝ Aqua Pure Chairman Richard Mangus said in the news release.

Fountain Quail builds and operates machinery that treats wastewater in the hydraulic fracturing method of drilling a natural gas or oil well. It has worked extensively with Devon Energy Corp. (NYSE: DVN) in the Barnett Shale.
