We’re meeting at 3:45 Sunday (9/24/23) at the Withy Barn (click on the map below for directions) to hear from Meg Sheehan regarding sand and gravel mining within Plymouth.
“Sand and gravel operations are big business, and environmentalists have been expressing concern for years that the leveling of Plymouth is impacting the precious Plymouth-Carver aquifer, the source of our drinking water. Storm water and runoff water that travels down into the aquifer passes through sand and gravel, which acts as a filter, cleaning it of impurities. Remove more and more of this filter, and the purity of the water is impacted, according to environmental scientists1.”
For planning purposes please RSVP so we can get an idea how many folks will be attending (either in person or livestream). Those who can’t attend in person are welcome to join via our livestream by clicking here.
