We are a grassroots organization whose primary focus is advocating for a clean Acushnet River which runs through New Bedford Harbor into Buzzards Bay. Currently, the EPA is dredging a huge hole in this river called a CAD cell, (Confined Aquatic Disposal) where they plan on burying 300,000 cy of PCBs, heavy metals and other contaminants this fall. The mechanical dredge process will cause some of the PCBs to become airborne compromising public health. This location is just yards away from a residential area of Fairhaven Massachusetts and its high school. This project was approved by the state, city of New Bedford and Town of Fairhaven.
