Plans to Discuss Storage Tank Facility Withdrawn

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) The company that proposed plans to build a storage tank facility on Mobile's waterfront has withdrawn its application.

American Tank and Vessel wants to store millions of barrels of petroleum in those tanks. The company had requested the Mobile Planning Commission approve plans for the 37 tank storage facility on Paper Mill Road.

Tuesday, the city announced the company had withdrew plans to present the proposal at a meeting with the commission. City officials believe the plans will come up again at another time.

Local 15 talked with residents Monday night who opposed the facility, saying it was dangerously close to Hog Bayou, as well as a neighborhood with schools and  homes.

A meeting is scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m., at Five River Delta Resource Center.
