The forgotten in Mayflower oil pipeline break

Posted By on Thu, Aug 8, 2013 at 10:34 AM

It's at the top of the page, but I want to call further attention to Sam Eifling's cover story this week on the "forgotten" of Mayflower. They are the dozens of residents who live within sight and smell of the pipeline rupture but who are getting scant attention from ExxonMobil or government officials.

Far more than the 22 homes under the mandatory evacuation order have significant concerns about their health and property values. No legislation has been introduced for them. Don't assume they're all plaintiffs in pending lawsuits, either. They aren't. Some just want answers to legitimate questions and aren't getting very far.
