On August 24 from 10am-12pm, we will flood Twitter and Facebook in a general public push to call for an open, transparent, meaningful health impact assessment on the Weymouth compressor station.
The results of air quality testing done over the preceding year by community members in this highly polluted Fore River Basin region are highly concerning – and have been shared with the MassDEP. Click here to read the results.
On July 17th, Governor Baker directed the Department of Public Health (DPH) and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to prepare a public health impacts assessment on the Weymouth compressor station – and to do this before any final decision was made on an air quality permit for the Spectra/Enbridge compressor.
Please see the Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station website at nocompressor.com for more information.
