“These developers have failed to comply with water pollution control programs as they have rolled out the largest development plan ever conceived in Massachusetts,” said Christopher Kilian, Vice President of Strategic Litigation at CLF. “The discharge of harmful pollutants from this site is degrading the Nashua River and putting the health and safety of nearby residents at risk. The owners of the site have ignored the law, and it’s time they are held accountable.”
Pollution from the massive development at the former Fort Devens is endangering the iconic Nashua River. CLF is working to ensure that Devens follows through with its legal requirements to monitor and prevent pollution. And we are making sure that Devens lives up to its own advertising and does not miss out on the opportunity to be a true model for new development.
