An agency with the federal government is against the proposed Titan Cement Plant in Castle Hayne.
Titan wants to build a plant similar to its existing operation near Roanoke, Virginia.
It’s in line to receive some tax breaks if it does, but first, it must clear a series of hurdles.
The Army Corps of Engineers is overseeing an environmental review of the plan.
In a letter to the corps obtained by WECT, the US Fish and Wildlife Service says the Castle Hayne site is home to a wide variety of animals and its wetlands may be irreplaceable.
A supervisor for the Fish and Wildlife Service says Titan should look for another, less damaging location.
