Option to dump wastewater is not an option
Holtec International announced that its decommissioning plan for the Pilgrim Nuclear Plant includes the option of dumping 1 million gallons of radioactive wastewater into Cape Cod Bay.
Our state and national delegations have joined local activists in opposition to this unthinkable prospect. Where is Governor Baker’s voice on this? We urge him and President Biden to ensure that there are no loopholes between state and federal regulations that would allow dumping wastewater rather than safely relocating it to a regulated facility.
