Growing opposition to compressor station in Rehoboth

Local opposition is growing against plans to build a compressor station in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.

Spectra Energy wants to put the compressor in, as part of a three-billion-dollar project, to transport as much as a billion gallons of natural gas to New England.

The compressor station would be built off Tremont Street in Rehoboth, near the Attleboro line.

Critics are against the compressor station, which would be needed to move the gas through the pipeline.

Opponents have scheduled a meeting Wednesday night at the Blanding Library in Rehoboth.

The final decision will be made by the state Energy Facilities Siting Board
