Boston Magazine examines the state of New England, which has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. As Stephen J. Simurda writes: "Eastern New England is becoming one urban sprawl. There are too many cars for the roads. There won't be enough fresh water for the houses that are already being built along I-495. The landfills are full...And while many of us have paid little attention, a small but growing band of planners, environmentalists and state officials has bad news for us. 'There's a good chance,' one says, 'that we're going to strangle ourselves.'" Simurda's investigation reveals that Massachusett's eco-system is out-of-wack due to this rampant urban growth.
