Since the State approved Eversource’s Yearly Operational Plan to use herbicides to control vegetation along their power lines this fall, the four Cape towns that are challenging this ruling –Brewster, Dennis, Eastham and Orleans — have succeeded in obtaining a date for a Pre-Hearing Conference before the Division of Administrative Law Appeals. THIS IS A MAJOR STEP FORWARD!! Attorney Bruce Taub will represent all four towns, and we have secured a top toxicologist to testify at this Hearing. We applaud the towns’ efforts to pursue this matter and to prevent Eversource from using herbicides in this way ever again on Cape Cod. Now POCCA needs your help to raise awareness and lend support to this mission to protect our only aquifer!
The POCCA Team has three key actions for us ALL OF US to do at this critical time. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED NOW! Please take the following simple steps to help prevent unnecessary use of thousands of gallons of herbicides by Eversource along power lines on Cape Cod.
