Community Info Session about Sprague Energy terminal

Please join the Quincy Climate Action Network on Wednesday, May 19, 7–8pm, for an online discussion with Ian Coghill and Grace Li of Conservation Law Foundation about Sprague Energy’s apparent violations of its environmental permit at its terminal at 740 Washington Street, Quincy. 

Sprague Energy is required to use good engineering practices to assess risks from climate change and to pro-actively prepare for extreme weather events, which as we know are becoming ever more frequent. Conservation Law Foundation has found that the earthen berms around Sprague’s terminal – which were designed to contain an oil spill caused by a leak or storm event – appear to be improperly maintained and are eroding away into the Town River. CLF and QCAN would like to inform local residents who might be affected by an oil spill to see if we might work together to pressure Sprague to address the situation.

Please help us spread the word, and especially consider coming if you live or work near the terminal or use of any of these nearby attractions:

  • Avalon Beach
  • Fore River Club House
  • King’s Cove Park
  • Lovell’s Grove Park
  • Mound Street Beach
  • Taffrail Road Playground
  • Town River Yacht Club

Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link for this online event.

This event is co-sponsored by Quincy Climate Action Network, Quincy for Transformative Change, and Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station. Share the Facebook event here.
