Cracker plant concerns and questions will be addressed in Tuesday meeting


The proposed cracker plant in Belmont County is still on the horizon, but more people are growing concern of the environmental effects it could have on the area.

Residents will be able to ask questions concerning those potential hazards Tuesday evening at the Marshall County Public Library. 

A lawyer will be present to provide information on topics, such as emissions and pollutants that could impact air quality and drinking water.

“It’s very frightening what might come into the area as far as chemical pollution the air and water contaminates that are going to be here,” said Beverly Reed of the Sierra Club. 

There will also be a question-and-answer session following the meeting.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m.
