'Unplanned Gas Release' at Controversial Gas Facility in Weymouth, South of Boston

Car parade protest of Weymouth gas compressor station after a leak
Read time: 6 mins

The standard, pre-operational testing of a new natural gas Compressor Station in the Massachusetts community of Weymouth, south of Boston, had barely begun last week when a gasket failure prompted an emergency shutdown of the facility and resulted in an unintentional gas leak. Weymouth's compressor station, once open, would keep gas pumping through a regional pipeline system, but even before this gas leak, its road to get there has been bumpy, with outcries over its air pollution permit and health concerns from the surrounding community.
