Public Meeting to Discuss Proposed Oroville Temporary Debris Handling Facility

Posted on December 21, 2018

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will host a public meeting to discuss the proposed debris handling facility in Oroville and answer questions.

When: Thursday, December 27, 2018, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: State Theatre, 1489 Myers Street in Oroville

The USACE in coordination with FEMA, released its Environmental Assessment for use of the former Koppers Inc. Plant in Oroville, California, as a temporary debris handling facility (TDHF) to stage, sort, process and transfer non-hazardous debris (e.g., concrete, masonry, vehicles and other metal materials) generated from the 2018 Camp Wildfire. The ash and other debris will not be taken to this site.

The public meeting is an opportunity to hear from state and federal officials about the proposed facility and ask questions. USACE is also soliciting public comment on the proposed facility through December 30, 2018, via email at TDHF@usace.army.mil.
