Public Forum on Gas Leaks In Wellesley on March 21

Join us on Tuesday, March 21 from 7-8:30pm at the Wellesley Free Library (530 Washington St., Wellesley) for a public discussion of gas leaks in Wellesley!  You may have seen the signs posted around town by volunteers from Sustainable Wellesley and Wellesley Green Schools marking the roughly 200 gas leaks in our neighborhoods. All that leaking gas poses a risk to our safety, our health, and our environment. As ratepayers, we are all paying for this wasted gas!

Come hear more about this issue and what we can do about it!

The Board of Selectmen will preside, joined by Representative Alice Peisch. Featured panelists:

  • Dr. Nathan Phillips, Dept. of Earth & Environment, Boston University
  • Audrey Schulman, Home Energy Efficiency Team
  • Dr. Regina LaRocque, Mass General Hospital
  • Sue Fleck, Pipeline Safety, National Grid

Town officials will also be available to answer questions.

Co-sponsored by Wellesley Board of Selectmen, State Representative Alice Peisch, State Senator, Cynthia Creem, State Senator Richard Ross, Natural Resources Commission, Sustainable Energy Committee, Health Department, and Sustainable Wellesley.
