About Our Campaign

Eversource Gas is planning on building a new high-pressure metering station, or “Point of Delivery” (POD) station in Longmeadow that would connect to a new high-pressure gas pipeline that would run 5.3 miles to the Bliss Street Regulator station in downtown Springfield.

 

The POD station would be sited in a residential neighborhood, less than a quarter mile from Wolf Swamp Elementary School in Longmeadow. The pipeline would pass under major roads, through residential neighborhoods in Longmeadow and through environmental justice residential neighborhoods in Springfield. It would pass less than a quarter mile from Sumner Avenue School, a preschool and elementary school in Springfield.

 

The Longmeadow and Springfield communities are working together to fight back against this proposed metering station and expansion pipeline because it is an unnecessary gas expansion project that would put the health and safety of our communities at risk, worsen the climate crisis, and cost Massachusetts Eversource rate-payers over $65 million.
