To The Editor:

I am a Town of Plainville business owner and a 15 year property owner. I am appalled with the Tilcon proposal and I am opposing their plan to expand the quarry onto 131 acres of valuable watershed. These watersheds are critical for the animals and various species along with irreplaceable underground aquifers.

The promise of a potential new reservoir to be given and donated by Tilcon in 40 years is nothing more than fool’s gold, especially considering Tilcon may not be in business at that time.

In summary, having been born and bred in Plainville along with being a residential property and business owner, I believe we are short changing our future generations of the beautiful watersheds for short-term corporate profit.
