Did you know that Newton has over 400 natural gas leaks from aging, underground pipes? These leaks release methane, contribute to climate change, harm our future, waste energy, and damage human health and trees. Consumers pay the cost.
Join Newton Mothers Out Front and other allies to tag the gas leaks in our town and help spread the word about this invisible hazard! Come to a rally at the Newton Free Library to hear a few words about the campaign and then head out to tag the leaks. They’ll give you the materials you need to tag.
Newton Free Library, Homer Street Entrance, 330 Homer Street
Saturday May 13, 1:30 p.m. (rain date May 20).
1:30 p.m.--Gather to learn how gas leaks harm us and what we can do.
2:00 p.m.-- Join a team to tag leaks near local schools, parks, and village centers.
