Mothers Say NO Air Permit for the Weymouth Compressor


Tell Governor Baker and the DEP the air quality permit process for the Fore River Basin is compromised. They must listen to the mothers AND the doctors.


Mothers Out Front will be joining Weymouth residents at an appeal hearing in Boston on the Air Quality Permit that was unjustly issued to the Compressor Station planned for Weymouth without hearing all of the evidence and facts. Governor Baker’s agency appointees are responsible for issuing this and other permits that are allowing this compressor station to go forward, and he can use his power to stop it. Read more about the compressor in Weymouth here [Link to MOF or FRRACS page?]

Furthermore, the Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) have done their own studies and determined that the compressor station would put the Fore River Basin at risk. See more here [Link to PSR statement?]

We have no time to lose. Construction could start in early July if these last permits are approved. We’re showing up in person and boosting online. Let's do a Twitter Storm!
