Community Meeting – HIA of the Proposed Compressor Station (Weymouth, MA) @ Abigail Adams Middle School
Jun 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join us as we initiate a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) on a proposed natural gas compressor station in the Town of Weymouth.
The community meeting will include an open house with a brief presentation for participants to familiarize themselves with the HIA process and the proposed decision, as well as space for discussion and public input about potential health effects and concerns related to the proposed station.
What is a Health Impact Assessment?

A Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a process that uses available data, health expertise, and public input to identify the possible health effects of a proposed change. HIAs are used to assess proposals, such as development projects or legislative policies, to produce recommendations that optimize health outcomes.
