On Tues Oct 11, we (Massachusetts Health Care Providers Against Fracked Gas) held a press release across from the West Roxbury metering & regulating station site to issue our Call for a Moratorium on new major fracked gas infrastructure in the state.
We specifically requested that local, state, and federal elected officials and agencies institute this moratorium until Comprehensive Health Impact Assessments are incorporated into the review process for high-pressure pipelines & pipeline infrastructure, LNG facilities, and fracked gas power plants.
All documents on this web site are in the public domain and available for download and distribution, including those from our Oct 11 press conference:

We at Mass Health Care Providers Against Fracked Gas have begun preparing this site to share reference materials and our prepared materials with the general public, community organizations, and local and state officials.
The site is being set up in support of several events and will be restructured over time, to better serve as a resource. For the moment, use the “Menu” button on the upper right corner to find our expanding list of materials.
