The group meets the last Monday of the month and has monthly meetings for its Eyes on Shell watchdog group preparing for the startup of the Shell Plastic Plant. Reimagine Beaver is striving to develop a new energy economy based on renewable energy sources.

Fighting Petrochemical Industry Buildout

Residents of SWPA are fighting a David vs. Goliath battle against the petrochemical industry in Allegheny, Beaver and Washington counties and beyond to Ohio and West Virginia. The Appalachian Basin is facing massive growth of this highly polluting fossil fuel industry from the Shell Plastic Plant in Beaver, Pa., to pipelines, compressor stations, drilling operations, wellpads, a storage hub and truck traffic.  This industry will push our planet over the edge on climate change, making it absolutely impossible to meet Paris Accord Climate Goals. Residents in Beaver County have stepped up with the formation of a citizen watchdog team, Eyes on Shell, that records and reports smells, spills and air emissions from the Shell Plastic Plant.
