Plympton: SLT continues Earth Removal in blatant violation of Sept. 28, 2022 Cease & Desist Order

Unregulated sand and gravel mining is ravaging Southeastern Massachusetts and ruining the lives of people living next to these mines. One of the worst offenders is SLT Corporation and its destructive mining operation in Carver and Plympton. SLT applied for a new permit to expand into Plympton even though it is under a cease and desist – which it is ignoring. Why are regulators allowing this? Why did MassDOT sell this land to SLT Construction for earth removal? About 20 acres were mined while MassDOT owned it. Where did the sand go? Where did the money go? Why did MassDOT allow strip mining on public land?

Pulling back the curtain on the sand and gravel industry in Southeastern Massachusetts and the Town boards and officials complicit in the schemes – whether its “cranberry agriculture” or a “subdivision road” that requires leveling the town’s highest hill the operation on Route 44 in Carver — it is a scam. This exposes our drinking water to contamination, destroys our forests and poisons people with cancer-causing silica dust.

Carver: Cranberry Point Battery Storage Facility: Overview

Texas based PowerPlus is proposing a 150 MW lithium ion storage battery system in a residential neighborhood in Carver MA. Governor Baker calls this clean energy-it will store electricity from fossil fuel plants until maybe some day in the future there is renewable electricity in SE MA that needs storage. Carver already has 19 large ground mounted solar projects with battery storage. We’ve done our part. Put it elsewhere.

Carver: Cranberry Point: Siting Board Proceedings

The 150 MW project will be located in a residential neighborhood abutting cranberry bogs and over a sole source drinking water aquifer. Experts testified that CP’s application was incomplete and did not have adequate protections for safety and prevention of air toxics in the event of a thermal runaway that will release toxic hydrofloruide gasses.
