Dartmouth Residents Continue To Oppose Landfill Capping Plan

 

tsm – Planning Board member Joe Toomey (second from left) discuss Smith Landfill with town residents.

More than 100 Dartmouth residents attended a pep rally of sorts Thursday night in North Dartmouth. 

They were urged to write letters to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, hoping to halt a state plan to cap the privately-owned Cecil Smith Landfill in Dartmouth with contaminated soil to be trucked in from the Boston area.

Officials are concerned that contaminants from the landfill could pollute underground water supplies years down the road.

The deadline for public comment on the project is Monday, May 13th.
