Before that, the EFSB has scheduled two hearings in communities affected by the new water plan:

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM in the Charlestown Elementary
School Gymnasium
, 363 Carolina Back Road, Charlestown, Rhode Island

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM in the Burrillville High School

Before that time though, there should be some hearings regarding various motions and requests made by lawyers on all sides of the case, including Conservation Law Foundation (CLF)’s renewed motion to dismiss and the Narragansett Indian Tribal Council motion to intervene.
