A:What's holding us back on the plant expansion project? We were supposed to see the specs on that ages ago.Why haven't I heard anything about it? Did the whole project just vanish into thin air?

B:No, sir. The plant expansion project has been delayed.There was a snag up in the filng process to get the neccessary construction permits.It seems that the property we were slated to build on is also habitat for some endangered indigenous species.

A:You're joking, right? No wonder we've been tied up with this project. I know the environmental impact statement will take forever to get approval if they've found anything endangered on the site. Are they positive there is evidence of endangered species actually living there?

B: The environmental review board has a team on it now.Hopefully we'll know more by the end of the week.是什么阻止了我们扩大工厂的计划?我们本来很久以前就应该看到任务书了.为什么我没有听到什么消息?整个计划就这么消失得无影无踪了?
没有消失,先生.扩大工厂的计划被推迟了.在申请得到必要的建设许可证的过程中遇到了阻碍.好像是我们要在上面建厂的地产也是当地一些濒危物种的栖息地.

Snag: a problem or difficulty, especially one that is small, hidden or unexpected (尤指潜在的、意外的、不严重的)问题,困难,障碍,麻烦
