Army Corps holds public meeting regarding Titan plant tonight

READ MORE:
Members of the public have a chance to voice their opinions tonight over the much-debated topic of bringing a Titan cement plant to New Hanover County. The Army Corps of Engineers will facilitate a meeting to gather information from both sides. Officials will use information heard tonight to help decide whether they will issue a permit to build along the northeast Cape Fear River in Castle Hayne. A Corps spokesperson says one of the organization's main concerns is determining the effect building the plant would have on water quality. Tonight's meeting starts at 6:00 p.m. at the Wilmington Christian Academy at 1401 North College Road.

First

KUDOS to the guy below for ACTUALLY doing some research on what he was told instead of blindly following like a sheep.... Lastly....the "editors" disinformation and lack of knowledge on the subject is TYPICAL of the types of individuals fighting this thing.

Brigadier General Gerald Galloway

Before any of you enter into an agreement with Titan and the Corps of Engineers should consider this conflict of interest and read this article: Media "expert" and former member of the USACE, engineer Brigadier General Gerald Galloway, was heard on NPR Radio this weekend. Galloway's resume states he is a "visiting scholar at the US Army Corps of Engineers Institute for Water Resources and a Senior Consultant to the Michael Baker Corporation for the FEMA Flood Map Modernization Program." This would hardly qualify Galloway as an independent expert. Galloway was also a Vice-President at Titan Corporation, a consultant to the Executive Office of the President of the United States, and has "assisted the US Water Resources Council, the World Bank, the Organization of American States, TVA, the Corps of Engineers and various other organizations in water resources related activities." http://www.opednews.com/articles/3/Floods--Army-Corps-Says-PR-by-Georgia...

Different Titan, Einstein!

The Titan Corporation has nothing to do with Titan America LLC. The Titan Corporation was a defense contractor that was bought out and merged with L3 Corportaion in 2004. Titan America LLC makes aggregates and cement products. And you're an editor????? HA!
