The Fight Against the Back Bay/South End Pipeline

Since the “Walk for Renewables” on August 1, 2016, which took place along the route of the proposed Back Bay/South End gas pipeline, BCEC has been working to make residents aware of this fossil-fuel project, gain information and details about the extent of the project, delay PIC permitting of the project at least until a robust community process is held, and ultimately stop the pipeline from being built because the City will never meet its carbon neutral goals by constructing more gas pipelines such as this one.

The City of Boston agreed to hold a meeting with representatives from National Grid to discuss the pipeline project on January 16. More than 150 environmental advocates, area residents, elected officials representing the Back Bay/South End, reporters, and others attended.
