Morehead City Port Possible Sulfur Storage Site

A long process of fighting off a sulfur plant in Carteret County now has officials in talks of building a sulfur storage facility.

PCS Phosphate and the Clean County Coalition met about building a dry enclosed solid sulfur storage facility at the port in Morehead City.

In the meeting, PCS Phosphate said they had "misjudged the public reaction" to its earlier plan to build a sulfur re-melting plant at the port.

After the meeting, the company promised a commitment to complete transparency in their intentions for the dry storage facility.

If followed through, the building would be the first in the industry that stores sulfur in open piles.

    We can't allow this to happen. We're in a hurricane prone zone, and with high winds it could destroy their building and liquify the sulfur destroying our county and surrounding areas for many years. Let them build thier building in Aurora where they've done so much land damage with their digging. We don't need to be a first with this one.
