MONACA, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has scheduled a question-and-answer session to be followed by a public hearing on Shell Chemical's plans for a petrochemical plant in western Pennsylvania.
DEP spokesman John Poister says the agency and Shell will give brief presentations on the permitting process and the plans for the site in Potter Township, Beaver County, site of the former Horsehead zinc processing plant.
That begins at 6 p.m. May 5 and will be followed by an informal question-and-answer session. People who wish to make statements or ask questions at the formal public hearing — which begins at 7 p.m. — must register in advance.
The event will be held at the Central Valley High School auditorium in Monaca.
Shell has yet to commit to the plant about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
