The Environmental Protection Agency in Ohio has issued a modified water permit to the proposed PTTGCA Petrochemical Complex, or ethane cracker, in Belmont County.

“With today’s issuance of this modified permit, Ohio EPA’s environmental review of PTTGC America’s proposed ethane cracker plant is complete,” said Ohio EPA Director Craig W. Butler. “We have an adverse impact on the air, water or health of the surrounding communities.”

The complex will be located at Old Route 7 and Ferry Landing Road in Shadyside.

Included in the modified permits include a decrease in the level of pollutants to be discharged in the Ohio River, as well as a change in the locations where storm water will be discharged.
