State Division of Air Quality extends comment period for cement plant

You have more time to voice your thoughts on Titan America's draft air permit for a cement plant in Castle Hayne. The state Division of Air Quality is extending the comment period from October 30th to November 20th. The state issued a draft air permit for the project last month. Two more public meetings are scheduled for October 20th. They are at the BB&T Auditorium at Cape Fear Community College's North Campus. The hearings are from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

Titan Cement factory

I live with my wife and my 5 year old son and soon to be new baby girl.I am very concerned about the new cement plant that they are proposing in Castle Hayne.If the main purpose for allowing the factory to go in is the jobs that it is going to create for the area it is totally ridiculous. If you would take into consideration the amount of pollution the factory will give off. It will decamate the rivers, wildlife, fisheries, produce not to mention all the health problems that it is going to cause! Look at the local economy in our area it thrives on the seafood industry to keep it going just think of all the jobs that will be lost due to the pollution killing off all the fisheries in the area Oysters, Clams, Shrimp, Fish and etc. It will be a disaster! I think everybody better think real hard about this before we get ourselves into something that we will regret forever! Thank You for you time.

Thanks for that alarmist rhetoric

Please enlighten us as to the health problems we KNOW this plant will cause. Then tell us where you found that crystal ball. We are a country of laws. If Titan can operate within existing environmental law, then they have a right to build that plant. It really IS that simple.
