Lynch Statement on Weymouth Compressor Station

Apr 29, 2016

BOSTON, MA – Today, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Boston) released the following statement in response to negotiations with Spectra Energy regarding the proposed compressor station in North Weymouth along the Fore River:

“I have had recent conversations with Mayor Bob Hedlund, Mayor Joe Sullivan, and Mayor Tom Koch from the directly impacted communities. My opposition to the proposed compressor station in North Weymouth has not changed or diminished.  I believe the area is too densely settled.  It has a substantial residential population with a lot of young children.  It is already over-burdened with heavy industry and I believe there are public safety concerns that have not been addressed.  I plan to keep fighting for a workable solution.”
