Let's Claim Our Future New Hanover County!
Titan America wants to develop one of the largest cement manufacturing facilities and strip mines in the nation on the shores of the Cape Fear River in Castle Hayne, New Hanover County, NC. If they succeed, it will be one of the largest sources of air pollution in our area for the next 50 years. Titan Cement will extract 13-16 millions of gallons of our local drinking water supply, while risking our health and destroying our natural resources including thousands of acres of valuable wetlands. Now is the time to unite and stand for a sustainable future for next generations.
