MONDAY — JUNE 17, 2019 — EAST WEYMOUTH, MA
compressor safety meeting - weymouth
— Compressor Station Safety Meeting with PHMSA

Help us pack the room for a meeting with the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to discuss safety issues relating to the compressor station proposal.

The proposed Weymouth compressor station poses many risks. We know that pipelines and compressor stations leak and explode. It’s not a matter of if, but when.

For the past four years, we have been making the effort to voice our concerns with the Department of Transportation, PHMSA (Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration) and Local Emergency Planning Boards. Aside from one meeting with our local emergency planning board last fall, we haven’t had much luck getting these agencies to pay attention. Luckily, we have many allies on our side who have echoed our calls, including Congressman Stephen Lynch. Congressman Lynch has made consistent efforts to get public safety officials to take a serious look at the compressor station proposal, and the impact it would have on the community. So, we’re happy to announce that a public meeting with PHMSA has been set! Many thanks to Congressman Lynch and our local elected officials for making this happen.

PHMSA will be holding a public listening session to examine the serious public safety issues relating to the construction and operation of the proposed Weymouth compressor station.

We need you to spread the word and pack the room. Come with your comments and concerns.

SUNDAY — JUNE 23, 2019 — NORTH WEYMOUTH, MA
painting in the park
Painting in the Park – A call for South Shore and Boston area artists to come and create in all media: Draw, Paint, Photo, Three D, Video

We invite you to join us at King’s Cove park (located next to the proposed compressor station site) for an afternoon of art. Come and express your concerns for our environment and its vulnerability. There is no denying that corporations are putting our air and water at risk. Join artists as they lead the way in coming together to bring the vision forward.

Think Globally/ Act Locally

A toxic fracked-gas compressor station is proposed for a site facing the Boston Harbor Islands affecting neighborhoods in Weymouth, Quincy, Braintree, and beyond. A compressor station has never before been built on the coast and in such a densely populated area in the United States.

Come and enjoy the day and let’s bring our voices together. Children and families and adults are encouraged to make art (there will be a children’s art table). Materials and instruction for getting started will be provided.

Come and create or just watch! Let’s make a day of it!

Thank you to the Braintree Art Association who are participant members of this event.
