Meeting on Petrochemical Projects in the Ohio River Valley

  • This event has passed.

Please join local Ohio Valley residents, the Sierra Club, FreshWater Accountability Project, and the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition for an informational meeting on to the potential Belmont County cracker plant and petrochemical hub on:

Tuesday, February 26th

6pm at the Moundsville public library.

A few nonprofits are appealing the PTTG air permit that was approved by the Ohio EPA.

The permit was extremely deficient and is not adequately protective of human health and the environment. There will be an attorney present who is involved with the appeal to answer questions and talk about some of the deficiencies.

The purpose is to inform the public about the planned projects and potential hazards, talk about what can be done about it, and also to show solidarity as we continue to resist these projects. Please share with others. Attached is the flyer for the event, as well as the deficiencies of the permit.

There are a plethora of reasons why this plant and the potential build-out from it will negatively impact the entire region, and also the planet as a whole. These will be discussed at the meeting. Please let me know if you have any questions.
