What:             No PTTG: Petrochemicals and Plastics Press Conference   
                       Residents concerned about the proposed 500-square-mile petrochemical build-up in
                       the Ohio River Valley, known as the Appalachian Storage and Trading Hub, and its
                       associated infrastructure, including the PTTG Ethane Cracker facility, will voice their

When:            Monday, March 2, 2020 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Where:           WV State Capitol Building, Lower Rotunda, East (Attorney General side)        

Who:               Residents from Marshall and Ohio County, WV, and Belmont County, Ohio, along 
                        with their allies. 

Why:               During the 2020 West Virginia Legislative Session, many WV legislators have been 
                        promoting a so called “petrochemical renaissance” in the Ohio River Valley region, 
                        with little to no input from local community members, nor consideration of strong   
                        evidence that such infrastructure and its products are harmful to human health and 
                        the environment. Residents who would be impacted by the construction of the 
                        PTTG Ethane Cracker in Belmont County, OH, will be at the WV Capitol to voice
                        their opposition to state Senators and Delegates.
