Entergy: Licensed to Kill in Cape Cod Bay
more: Cape Cod Bay Watch: Entergy: Licensed to Kill in Cape Cod Bay
Cape Cod Bay Watch is a volunteer public interest group dedicated to stopping Entergy’s destructive “once through” cooling water operations at its nuclear reactor. We work with a wide range of groups and residents working to restore our communities and Cape Cod Bay in the face of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s unlawful decision to relicense Entergy-Louisiana’s operation of Pilgrim for another 20 years – until 2032.
In May 2012, the NRC granted the twenty year license extension for the Pilgrim plant. The second appeal by the AG’s Office, filed today in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, challenges the NRC's decision to grant the extension without first considering the lessons learned from the nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi and their relevance for the Pilgrim plant – a plant of similar design to those that failed in Japan. The NRC also refused, before relicensing, to consider additional mitigation measures raised by the AG's expert to reduce these risks. June 18, 2012
