Shell Accountability Campaign Hosts Nov. 2 Shell Petrochemical Plant Town Hall Meeting On Emergency Response Plans In Beaver County

The Shell Accountability Campaign will host a November 2 town hall meeting on the Shell Petrochemical Plant and Emergency Response Plans starting at 5:00 p.m. at the Community College of Beaver County, Learning Resources Center, Room 9103, 1 Campus Drive in Monaca.

A virtual attendance option is available.

For months, Beaver County residents have been raising questions and concerns about the local government’s emergency response plans and notification procedures.

Community members worked hard to organize a Town Hall event on August 15, which should have been a space for residents to raise questions and concerns directly and openly with county leadership and staff — but just one week before the event, Beaver County Commissioners chose not to attend.

In response, community leaders have organized a series of town halls throughout Beaver County to educate neighbors about the Shell plastics plant in Potter Township, its health and safety impacts, and actions community members can take!

Join the town hall at 5:00 p.m. for food and refreshments, followed by presentation starting at 6:00 p.m.
