"There have been significant problems over the years, both in the city of Chester with the use of incinerators, and quite honestly, there’s just been pollution in a lot of different locales that hasn’t been properly, in my view, investigated."

“It’s a nightmare … living without water for so long is a nightmare,” said Tarr. “ It’s like we’ve been thrown to the wolves, left to figure it out … we can’t keep living like this.”

Dragon Pipe Diary blogger George Alexander is a vocal critic of the ME2 pipeline. He doubts the project will be completed when the company claims.
