About Concerned Ohio River Residents
We are Ohio Valley citizens concerned about the extremely detrimental toll that the petrochemical and oil & natural gas industries will take on our health, air, water and future. We're organizing to protect our beautiful Ohio Valley from these toxic polluters. This website is dedicated to informing the public about the industries’ projects and the plethora of negative effects they bring with them. We also want to provide you with the tools and connections needed to get involved. We are supported by our partner grassroots organizations - national and local.
Currently, our main projects are stopping the PTTG cracker plant once and for all, halting waste barging along the Ohio River, protecting Belmont County residents from the effects of the waste recycling plant Austin Master, educating residents about the dangers of the West Virginia Methanol plant, and blocking Energy Storage Ventures’ NGL storage facility. You can read about each of these campaigns under our “Campaigns” section above.
The Ohio Valley deserves better than these toxic industries. We deserve something sustainable, something that won't further contaminate our already-polluted air and water, something that won't deteriorate into a bust after a few decades. We are standing in solidarity together to advocate a better future for our region and our planet.
