POCCA has filed against Eversource, formerly known as NStar, to stop herbicidal spraying of toxic chemicals over Cape Cod's sole source aquifer.  A hearing will be held next week, October 1, at 2 at the Barnstable courthouse.  This effort started seven years ago.  I even remember attending the first pruning party, pictured above.  Last night, over the phone, POCCA's Laura Kelley described POCCA's lawyer Bruce Taub as a "solid, strong voice for us all."  POCCA is still looking for more abutters to the power lines, willing to testify.  And, going to court is costly.  Please donate what you can to finance this effort and help keep endocrine disruptors out of our drinking water. Finally, consider attending next week's session. Come support POCCA. The more, the merrier.  Let's show Eversource Cape Cod means business.  We don't want our sole source aquifer to be polluted with herbicides.
