READ the letter to the editor by Kristina Phillipson, Mothers out Front, Bedford!
"As parents, we worry when children play in areas where they could face prolonged exposure to leaking methane. Mothers Out Front has raised awareness about leaks and currently tracks both progress and plans for remediation. Coordination between National Grid and town government on gas main replacements and fixes has improved, but the largest emitters (based on smell) remain unfixed because National Grid’s measurement tools do not identify them as imminently hazardous. In the face of conflicting measurements, we appreciate that National Grid and others are voluntarily working with nearby towns to improve accuracy."
