RIGHT-OF-WAYS ABUTTERS PROTECT YOURSELF from Herbicide Application by Eversource
The greatest mistake is for us to do nothing!
Report what you see to your Town Health Department and also to email@example.com.
We continue to educate the state, MDAR and Eversource,
yet they spray above our aquifer.
Why can’t we have electricity without poisoning our drinking water?
Are we going to allow corporate behavior
to undermine the web of life on Cape Cod? Our health, our environment and our finances are at stake.
Get involved. You live here.
On the list for 2017 YOP starting

~ Protect your loved ones ~
1 – Close all windows in homes and cars from
October 1st to December 31st.
2 - Relocate sensitive persons
keep kids & pets off of power lines until after many strong rains.
Track runners find another route until Springtime.
3 - Leave shoes outside for they will bring in chemical toxins
that linger in your carpets & rugs for years bringing
low dose toxic exposure to your pets & family.
4 - Bring in all toys and furniture prior to spraying and store inside.
5 - Do not grow any edible foods on or near power lines.
6 - Stake your well.
NO spraying is allowed within 50 feet of your private well.
7 - Remove trees and shrubs prior to spraying
and ask your neighbors also.
As an abutter you have the ability to
help stop more herbicide use along ROW
1 - Are you an abutter to the Rights-of-way power lines
on Cape Cod or MV?
2 - Do you have an easement with
Eversource on the deed to your land?
3 - What does the easement read
regarding vegetation management?
4 - Please scan your easement and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
5 - Call Eversource 1.800.592.2000,
ask to be exempt from herbicidal application.
6 - Would you like to go to court to stop this?
The POCCA team has an attorney willing
to do this for FREE but there are filing fees and mailing costs to explain.
7 - The POCCA team has taken Eversource to superior court on behalf of 4 abutters and were successful in receiving an exemption.
Thank you for getting involved in this
important matter to help protect our aquifer
