Weymouth: State Representative Vows to Fight Compressor Station Project After Air Permits Get Approved

The Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection has approved the air-quality permits for the controversial compressor station proposed in Weymouth, but one State Representative is saying the fight isn’t over

Ron Mariano represents the 3rd Norfolk District, which includes the Fore River Bridge, the proposed site for a natural gas compressor station.

He’s saying that he’s disappointed in the DEP for their decision to approve the air quality permits after mishandled hearings, as well as with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or FERC.


Mariano says the fight is frustrating, but doesn’t end here.


Mariano has represented the 3rd Norfolk District since 1991.
