At the Ward 5 Resistat this evening, I was reminded of an upcoming event by the Mothers Out Front representative. They are concerned with gas leaks from aging pipes throughout our city. These have been mapped and tagged, but there's a lot more to be done to get them fixed.

These gas leaks are even enough to be registered on our city's greenhouse gas assessment as something that should be reduced as we aim for carbon neutral city status. 

MOF are hosting a public forum on Saturday on this issue:  Facebook details

Non-facebook details: https://mothersoutfrontsomerville.nationbuilder.com/

Quick summary info: 
On SATURDAY, MAY 20th at 2 p.m. at the East Somerville Community School we will hold a public forum on gas leaks with Somerville state rep Christine Barber (sponsor of key upcoming gas leaks legislation), other elected officials and experts and representatives from National Grid and Eversource.
