Local planning officials are praising a proposal by cranberry grower Jeffrey Kapell to create a new tailing pond where outflow from his farming operations would go – in return for giving up water rights at the Billington Seat, where it has until now been discharged. Kapell said he would quit pulling water from that source, or discharging into it.
He also plans to sell some land to be designated as public open space.
A local planning board at Plymouth unanimously supported the proposal.
