It could have been your roads...

I understand Plainville isn't technically a "border town" BUT when you consider N Main Street in Attleboro leads straight to Kelly Blvd in North Attleboro where it turns into Taunton Street in Plainville, you can understand why I've included them here. One needs only consider, tracking down this road, to the gas stations on Kelly Blvd/Taunton St, where Plainville begins. Once contaminants reach this point, they are re-charged by gas stations and likely as potent as they were at the set of lights by Tri-Boro.

Engelhard Clean Up - What Residents Need To Know


You don't want Attleboro results, where they cut corners and pocket cash. Lot's of money rolls through these clean-ups and like the Big Dig Boston or Lamb Street DPW in Attleboro, those who can cash in...do. Now, from what I understand about Englehard, having lived in Plainville a few years in the 80's, there was a cancer cluster and some children ended up with the disease (I thought 4 or 5 but I could be wrong). Engelhard was found responsible and shut down.

After the shut-down, I believe, measures were taken to ensure the end of the cancer outbreak. As far as I know, it hasn't bothered anyone since.....why disturb what's working? Encapsulated contaminants are far safer than stirring the pot to rebuild. Plainville residents need to DEMAND the highest quality clean-up money can buy. If you do, then there won't be any money left for skimming (including interest!). This might end their plans, if cashing in was their intent.

Once the clean-up is underway

  • Open a Facebook account for the project - or build a website

  • Put together a task force and have someone at the clean up EVERYDAY to photograph progress. Make sure they know the basics of taking a decent photo. Show up at odd times - so they don't come to expect you.

  • Grab wide angle shots of the entire project - and zoom in on localized activity.

  • Post them on your FB or website.

  • There is a chance you might not know what is going on in the picture - by publicizing them, someone else may, and see that it's a crime - thus ending the project and any damage to your community.


    Until these clean ups are under control, we really have to take matters into our own hands.
