The following letter was sent to NStar:

You are obviously not understanding the importance of not using dangerous herbicides over our sole source aquifers.

Since water makes up approximately 50 to 60 per cent of our bodies, what could be more important than insuring our water is as pure and clean as possible? Your continued use of chemicals, such as Round Up, that will leach into our aquifers and cause illness in our community, shows not just a lack of judgment but a lack of respect for our well-being.

I think we are all happy to have electricity and we all appreciate a well working and efficiently functioning energy source, but not at the expense of our pure and healthy water. As you know already there are safe and nonchemical ways to do the job.

Thank you for your consideration.
