A Community Outreach Event was held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on July 17, 2018 to disseminate information regarding the RAWP and the planned remediation and engage in further dialogue with the community about the Site. This Community Outreach Event was held in the Cafeteria at the Blackstone Academy Charter School located at 334 Pleasant Street, Pawtucket, RI. On June 15, 2018, National Grid sent an abutter and mailing list notification to the Tidewater mailing list about upcoming event.
As part of facility upgrades, National Grid intends to complete certain reconstruction activities associated with the electrical substation on the site. While the soil data collected in the area of planned excavation suggest the potential for air quality impacts associated with this work is relatively low, National Grid will monitor air quality during these activities to confirm there are no air quality impacts.
