This Saturday, January 30, folks from PA will be discussing the health impacts of natural gas in South Deerfield, Massachusetts. This may be only time to hear their presentation and it'll be a great opportunity to connect with other pipeline communities. If you're interested in carpooling, then please email us at NoCompressor@gmail.com. More info below:
Presentation on Health Effects of Compressor Stations & Natural Gas Infrastructure
Researchers from the Southwest PA Environmental Health Project will be holding an afternoon seminar to help address questions from New England Communities with a focus on the effects of air pollution from Natural Gas Infrastructure.
This presentation is especially intended for local health and safety officials, town leaders and local activist leaders from communities that could be affected by pipelines, compressor stations and natural gas electric generation plants, though the general public is also welcome.
Since the researchers from SWP-EHP have limited availability to speak outside of their study area, the South Deerfield, Massachusetts location was chosen to be central to communities across New England and upstate New York. This may be a one-time opportunity to hear from the team that led the study on health effects from the Minisink, NY compressor station.

The Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project (EHP) is a nonprofit environmental health organization created to assist and support Washington County residents who believe their health has been, or could be, impacted by natural gas drilling activities. http://www.environmentalhealthproject.org/
