Several questions remain to be answered about how Bedford was designated as the ocean wind turbine port for all of New England and a resort casino destination. New Bedford is a superfund site with the largest fishing fleet on the East coast.

The proposed New Bedford Ocean Wind Turbine Port is near Blackmer Street. The New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal will consist of a 1,200 linear foot bulkhead with deep water access and roughly 20 acres of surface space. The port will be built next to the abandoned toxic Cannon Street Power Station, the proposed casino location.

The Cannon Street Station is 30 acres and can become the catalyst for the adaptive reuse of a brown-field site, but is one of the most toxic marine environments in the United States!

Most private or nonprofit groups are unable to build any project on the site of Commonwealth Electric's closed Cannon Street power station which contains fuel oil, tar, coal tar, cyanide, lead paint, asbestos, guano, asbestos, mold and heavy metals. Clean up costs are over 100 million.

We need to ask the candidates if they think a casino or any other project like an ocean wind turbine port will ever happen in this location behind a sixty year old hurricane barrier certified by the Army Corps of Engineers and how safe is this location in the event of a major hurricane.

Note ; The Army Corps of Engineers was found at fault by a federal judge for the levy failures in New Orleans .The levies were certified by the ACE.
