Members of the Mt. Pleasant zoning hearing board postponed a meeting Tuesday to consider a Range Resources Corp. proposal to close certain drilling water storage pits and replace some of them with above-ground tanks.

Supervisors of the Washington County township on Monday voted to consider the proposal further before taking action.

Township officials contend Range Resources violated land-use rules by continuing to use wastewater and freshwater pits there more than two years since the company moved its drill rigs away.

There is no meeting scheduled for the supervisors to discuss the issue, township manager Mary Ann Stevenson said. The supervisors next meet Oct. 23.

The zoning hearing board meets again Nov. 12.
