A company that already built one billion dollar plant in Lordstown planned on building a second, but now those plans for another plant to produce electricity are in jeopardy. 
A second billion dollar Trumbull Energy Center is dead in the water according to the developer, unless roadblocks that prohibit Warren city from providing water needed to cool the plant, are removed.
The developer worked out an agreement with Warren.
But the Mahoning Valley Sanitary District wants the contract, with the water coming from Niles, says it has capacity and a 24 inch waterline in place. 
"It affects Lordstown as a community overall in the long run versus having a different supplier coming into one specific business," said MVSD Chief Engineer Mike McNinch.
Only the president of the Public Affairs Board was in favor of approving the connection to the Warren Water saying it was an opportunity for Lordstown.
"We'll see if the project can survive and come back around and want to connect with MVSD that will be great but if not the opportunity is gone. I made a motion but there was a lack of a second, so there was no vote on allowing the water connection with Warren to take place," said Kevin Campbell President of the Board of Public Affairs. 
"I believe this will cause a lot of cards they put in place to fall apart, financing, permits and all the things they had it's very time consuming to put a lot of things together. If it comes together I'm guessing it will be a year or two from now it it can even be a possibility," added Campbell. 
The developer tells 21 News just starting over with the process to obtain a new water discharge permit for the project that would be near the first plant, would delay the project for up to one year.
The developer adds Lordstown Village stands to lose millions of dollars in income and property taxes and money spent in the village by workers.
"They would lose the 85 million and we would have been paying the Board of Public Affairs about a half a million dollars a year in fees, so a half a million over twenty years is ten million dollars," President of Clean Energy Future Bill Siderewicz said.
Subtract another $100 million of pay to union workers for construction and that has some asking a multi-million dollar question: What were they thinking?
"I want them to move forward with the project with the Trumbull Energy Center. If the investors are willing to upgrade Warren's facilities to feed them water, more  power to them lets get moving," Tony Deley said.
21 News asked the MVSD about people being upset blaming them for tanking the project.
"It's been over five years and there's still no project so how can we tank something that doesn't even exist, said MVSD Chief Engineer McNinch.
The plans were to break ground on the plant this summer.
