Cedarville Community Event

We had the largest group thus far for community education. We are concerned for the fish hatchery at Cedarville State Forest which is also a park where people camp, hike, and more. We hiked to the power lines where the pipeline will run underneath. We were right on the border of Prince George’s County and Charles County. The pipeline runs through both counties.

We wanted to go to the Cedarville trailer park because the pipeline dewatering could affect their artesian wells and because we know they have not been notified about this plan for the pipeline to the Mattawoman Energy plant that has not yet been built.

Please share the following photos via social media to let people know what is going on in your area (town, county, state, country and, as it is a climate change issue, world). Maryland can be a leader in climate change solutions if this additional fracked-gas power plant is NOT built. ALSO give them a link to our ACTION page which has a list of many ways they/you can help.

4 environmental advocates carry signs at Cedarville State Forest: “CleanAirPrinceGeorges.org Petition” (which you can find here); a photo of power plant emitting methane gas see it here; “No Tax Breaks for Polluters” (as Prince George’s County gave tax breaks to existing Keys Energy plant that’s only a little more than a mile away); and “No Corruption”
4 environmental advocates carry signs: “I Can’t Breathe… No Mattawoman” (meaning no Mattawoman power plant… not the river – the power plant took the river’s name); “No More Power Plants”; “No Power Plant Zone” with pictures of great things we could do instead; and “Clean Air is In Our Hands”
7 environmental advocates along Cedarville Rd. One sign reads: “No Pipeline Thru Cedarville Pk”
