CAMDEN — Maine towns around Penobscot Bay want to be heard on their concerns about a 14-story-high propane storage tank being planned in Searsport.

Denver-based DCP Midstream is moving forward with plans to build the 22.7-million tank after Searsport residents in March voted against a moratorium that would have put the project on hold or possibly derailed it.

WCSH-TV reported that Camden, Islesboro and other towns are expressing worries about the risk of the tank exploding or catching fire, or its potential impact on traffic, public safety and tourism.

The chairman of the Searsport Planning Board says a public hearing will be held on the proposal, and that the towns will be given a chance to speak and submit written comments.
