The public will have a chance to weigh in on a temporary debris handling facility for the Camp Fire in Oroville this evening. An environmental assessment from the Army Corps of Engineers was released last week for using the former Koppers Wood Treatment Plant. That site is being considered by FEMA as a temporary non-hazardous debris sorting location where concrete, masonry, and metal materials will be processed. The over 200 acre site is reported to be zoned for heavy industrial and commercial use.
The public meeting is an opportunity to hear from state and federal officials about the proposed facility and to ask questions. The meeting takes place at the State Theater on Mayers Street in Oroville tonight at 6 PM.
