BAKER ORDERS STATE TO INVESTIGATE COMPRESSOR STATION ISSUES

Requesting a formal public health assessment and a more thorough airing of public safety concerns, Gov. Charlie Baker has directed state agencies to investigate issues raised by opponents of a controversial natural gas compressor station planned along the banks of the Fore River in North Weymouth.

In a letter dated July 14 and released by Baker's office on Monday, Baker said he hopes his administration will examine claims about the project's potential impacts, gather public health data, and facilitate the presentation to the federal government of public safety concerns. And while he reiterated that the "primary decisions" about the project will be made by the federal government, Baker said he's committed to ensuring that community concerns are "heard fully."
