CONSOL Citation Not Related to Missing Employee Accident

Federal regulators have cited CONSOL Energy for failing to properly maintain part of a coal slurry pond where a man drowned November 30, but the violation was not related to or near the site of the partial collapse.
According to the Charleston Gazette,  the violation was related to erosion of a ditch along the access road to the impoundment.
Divers are still trying to recover the body of the missing CONSOL Energy employee who went into the Robinson Run slurry after a massive failure more than a week ago.

The divers were able to confirm that the body was in the bulldozer during a dive Monday. Since then, crews have been trying to figure out the safest plan to remove his body and bring it back to surface. There's no timeline on when this could happen.
The employee and the bulldozer submerged into the slurry when a massive failure broke off part of the area the man was working on. Two other employees in the area are recovering.
The missing employee is not being identified at the request of his family.
