I hope someone writes a blog explaining what is at stake. With all the other garbage we are filtering through our ever frail livers, why should we care?

Excessive nitrates cause blue baby syndrome. There is a lack of town regulation regarding the protection of the Water District Wells. The Water District does not come under the control of Town Meeting or the Board of Selectman, it is an independent entity as it should be, outside of town politics. We would like the planning board to set aside an approval on a development until a test is completed to determine the flow of the water that feeds those wellsites. Prevention of pollution is key to providing quality water to 81% of this town. Town water is supplied to homes, businesses, and schools. This is everyones concern. After pollution it's too late. Voice your concern at the planning board. Thanks Christine Allen Water Commissioner.

Seekonk was quick to issue a moratorium on pot shops because of laws and regulations unknown. How about a moratorium on building new neighborhoods until we can be sure our water is safe? How come every time a new development is planned, Seekonk is threatened with a lawsuit? It would be cheaper to say no more building any more homes in town rather than fighting every single developer.

i would prefer to debate the logic of stressing our water supply with development.of any kind.

You both have valid concerns. Other than the residents of Seekonk, our water aquifer is our most valuable resource that must be protected now and in the future. We never want to be in the position that we need to purchase our water from another city or town.
