Stow Con Comm hearing tonight on Eversource project

There is a Stow Conservation Commission Public Hearing tonight that may be of interest to the Lake Boon community.  It relates to the Eversource transmission line project and its effects on the lake and our wells.  While the approvals for the project are being appealed, Eversource is trying to move forward.  Both the Sudbury and Hudson Conservation Commissions are challenging many environmental aspects of this plan, with the Hudson commission reportedly mentioning the threat of contamination of Boon Lake at the EFSB hearing.  It is unknown whether the Stow Conservation Commission will challenge the plan.  Interested parties should attend tonight and make any concerns heard regarding the safety of our lake and our well water:  Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 8:00pm, Stow Town Building, 380 Great Road, Stow

For background, the Eversource/DCR Notice of Intent, Stormwater Report and Plans, and final EFSB decision have been posted on the Stow Con Comm’s web pages here: https://www.stow-ma.gov/conservation-commission/pages/upcoming-public-hearing-information-and-plans
