Save Forest Lake
Save Forest Lake PetitionSign PetitionSign Petition
We, the undersigned, as citizens of the North Country of New Hampshire, are opposed to the creation of a garbage landfill by Casella Waste Systems and NCES abutting Forest Lake in Dalton, NH.
The location of the proposed landfill fails to meet the criteria, as set forth in NH Solid Waste Administrative Rules, Section 149-M:1: to protect human health, to preserve the natural environment, and to conserve precious and dwindling natural resources through the proper and integrated management of solid waste.
A garbage landfill at this location would unduly interfere with the orderly development of the region. The North Country relies heavily on its scenic character and unspoiled beauty, and it is our intent to protect those natural resources which would be negatively impacted by this development. This would include the 397 acre Forest Lake State Park, Burns Pond, and Alderbrook, as well as the Johns, Connecticut, and Ammonoosuc Rivers.
