Peabody’s Polluting Peakers

My best birthday present is this Blog – thank you Ron! I’ll be placing much of the same content here that is posted to the BCNS Facebook page so that my non-Facebook friends can use our site instead.

There were no PMLP commissioners in attendance at the Torigian Center on December 7 at the DEP’s final air permit hearing for the new peaker on Pulaski Street. There were more than 80 people in attendance and many more who joined on Zoom. What an impressive line-up of speakers! Thank you!
