Polluting Chandler Bay is not okay

I come from a lobster fishing family. I am very worried about the pollution that the state is going to allow Kingfish to put into our water. Discharging 1,580 pounds of nitrogen a day is significant and can’t be explained away. We have a rich history of lobstering, and I am hoping that friends of mine who may support this project remember that. Just because the state says it’s okay, doesn’t mean it’s okay. Pollution discharge into Chandler Bay is not okay.

It’s time for our planning board to take the lead and protect what we have had for generations.
