MA - Mothers Out Front brings visibility to Acton gas leaks

Terrific coverage of the Mothers Out Front Acton Team's art exhibit to change the conversation about #methaneleaks and to make the invisible, visible.

According to Judith Aronstein of Mothers Out Front Acton, an environmental activist group dedicated to addressing climate change, a 2017 survey funded by the Acton Board of Selectmen and completed by Gas Safety USA measured the size of some 234 gas leaks in town. These leaks were reported over time by National Grid to town the town Department of Public Works.

Aronstein said Mothers Out Front wanted to “make the invisible, visible” by finding a way to visually represent those leaks and their size to town residents to help them see the number and size of those leaks and discuss their impact.

She said the display was about eight months in the making. It was marked Tuesday evening by about 30 residents and community leaders.
