In 2015, Emily Clark, writing for the Old Colony Memorial, warned that America’s hometown, Plymouth, was leveled by sand and gravel removal.
Today, the crisis is worse: Plymouth is at the epicenter of the global sand mining industry. The fine silica sand laid down by the glacier across the regional is a globally rare commodity.
Please plan to join chiltonville.org on Sunday, September 24th at 3:45-5:15 when Meg Sheehan will be talking about sand and gravel mining within Plymouth, illustrating their impact to ecosystems, aquifer and Indigenous cultural sites.
Meg is a public interest environmental lawyer who grew up in Plymouth. She is currently coordinator for Community Land & Water Coalition, a project of Save the Pine Barrens based in Southeastern Massachusetts. The Coalition’s mission is to protect, preserve and steward the land and water resources of the region.
