Landfill Public Hearing Wednesday, May 10, at 7 pm — Please Attend, Your Health is in the Balance.
This project taking place in Our Newburyport, New Venture LLC landfill, could be the greatest tragedy in the history of this community since some politicians and deep pockets wanted to build a thermo-fix plant in the wetlands.
This project should frighten every citizen who plans to live in this community for the foreseeable years.
The project was conceived by political intelligences to build a soccer field on top of the mountain, between the gas flares, once completed. That one example will give you the consideration given to the public’s welfare. I have seen other landfills of this LLC group.
The citizens of this community, after raised voices, finally won a seat at the table of discussion; not in the original plan. The air and water pollution that is being created has not been totally evaluated of its potential lethalness to all life in the surrounding area. The Little River runs along side the west slope of this man made style of Three Mile Island. Within a short walk of the Little River is the Artichoke and the citizen’s water supply.
If this project is allowed to continue with the mentality that created its conceptual plan, the effects may be experienced by our great, great grandchildren.
I urge all who may read this to tell everyone you know.
The status of the landfill today was arrived at by ignorance and pure greed.
If not completed properly, not only is the public’s health at risk, but years of Proposition 2 1/2 overrides to try and correct the ill results. The LLC of Delaware will not be available to help. It is only the public awareness and involvement that can bring the pressure to save the day.
