DEMMOM-The Saturn car division is gone,that I know, but the plant(in Springhill,TN)has been churning out the Chevy Traverse. The economic impact of that plant was and is huge!

Joew, there is no Saturn car anymore. Not a valid point in your arguement. We would have been devastated had it been here before GM quit making the brand. Old news.

The real story is that there is plenty of water for the plant in Ashville. The problem is that the neighbor owns the water rights, saw an oportunity to cash in big by holding the company hostage and the company called his bluff and moved on. The story isn't over, stay tuned.

Sorry Dcroakniak but you really should look and read on the companies web site why they decided not to locate here!I'm telling you that gaggle disease has now migrated to your brain! Why didn't the Saturn Car company locate here genius? Would be really nice to have that plant here now wouldn't it?

Yet again, the clueless church lady gaggle OBSERVER board deliberatey misleads the public in commenting on actual news, but worse, lends its opinions on business operating matters when, being wholly subsidized by their West Virginia Uncle Sugar Daddy, of course, have no idea about business operations.

Somehow, this German company, when determining their Ashville site location failed to realize/uncover/discover/communicate their mission-critical need for copious water requirements. When they finally realized the Ashville site simply didnt have the means to supply their needs, and to do so would require capital and legal investment to extend a pipeline, Saturn bailed.

So, it wasn't some yet-another-contrived-WNY-job-killing-govt-cost, it was the German company's inadequate due diligence.

There are a number of other sites where their water needs could be met without a massive infrastructure buildout -- but they bailed.

The gaggle should read their own news.

If we had a lake or a large body of fresh water nearby, the Petcare problem would go away. If we had a waterfall, we could get cheap electricity to fuel economic growth . I wonder where a large brewery in Colorado gets all their water from. In NY we act as if water is in short supply. We need more environmentalists. They sure are a big help to getting jobs here.
