Welcome to our site! Learn more about what Community Land & Water Coalition is doing to protect the Plymouth Carver Sole Source Aquifer from reckless development — much of it blatantly illegal!

We are exposing the corruption & back room deals by town officials who give out “earth removal permits” and refuse to enforce local laws to protect our aquifer, forests, wetlands, rivers, health and communities.

We are documenting the destruction on our You Tube Channel. Search by Town or location using “Playlist” or the search box.
For over 15 years, across its vast land holdings in Southeastern Massachusetts, AD Makepeace has destroyed forests, endangered species of plants and animals, threatened our sole source aquifer, destroyed Native American cultural sites, and undermined climate resiliency.

Slocum Gibbs Cranberry, Alex Johnson Cranberry, EJ Pontiff Cranberry and many others are carrying out massive mining projects under the ruse of building cranberry bogs. Other companies like SLT Construction use ruse of a “subdivision” to get permits.

We are here to stop this destruction and protect what is left for future generations.
