Proposed Substation: Potential Impact on Community

  • Risk of fire and electrocution in case of flooding (the substation site is in the 1% flood plain).
  • Loss of open space in a community that is getting denser by the day
  • Risk to officers in the station immediately next door
  • Industrial look-and-feel and reality in what is a beautiful coastal setting
  • Potential re-routing of coastal flooding around the area into neighborhood residences and community assets

  • Safer alternative locations exist for the electric substation, for example within the secure perimeter at Logan Airport.
