OROVILLE, Calif. - North State residents have an opportunity to talk and ask questions in a meeting Thursday night regarding a temporary debris removal facility proposed by federal agencies.


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) are hosting the public meeting.


The meeting is held Thursday from 6-8 p.m. on 1489 Myers St. (State Theatre) in Oroville.


USACE wants to use the former Koppers Inc. Plant in Oroville for a temporary debris handling facility to stage, sort, process and transfer non-hazardous debris made from the Camp Fire.


Ash will not be taken into the site, officials said.
