Officials planning to construct an organic material professing facility at the Charlestown Maritime Center will not need to prepare an Environmental Impact Report for the project, the Charlestown Patriot-Bridge reported

The proposal calls for the construction of a 9,900 square-foot building to serve as an organic material processing and transportation facility, and would include the relocation of a smaller building to 333 Terminal St. to be used for other purposes, according to the report. 

Officials have been looking to approve the proposal, and the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority began that looks to ship organic fuel processed from the Charlestown facility to the Deer Island Treatment facility in Winthrop, the Patriot Bridge previously reported

Massachusetts Environmental Secretary Richard Sullivan recently determined that a Environmental Notification Form for the proposal adequately described the nature and elements of the project and that it demonstrated that the project's environmental impacts would be avoided or minimized to a practical extent, according to the report.
