Richard Webster, Esq., NYS Decommissioning Oversight Board member
Michel Lee, Esq., Chairman, Council on Intelligent Energy & Conservation Policy (CIECP)
Join Riverkeeper on Thursday, March 16th at 6:30PM for a webinar that will address plans by Holtec International, the firm responsible for decommissioning Indian Point, to discharge radioactive wastewater into the Hudson River as early as August of 2023, and possibly sooner.
Riverkeeper is firmly against these discharges and the risks it will bring to the river and supports calls to keep all radioactive wastewater out of the Hudson.
REGISTER FOR OUR WEBINAR on Thursday, March 16 at 6:30pm: “Say NO to Indian Point Radioactive Wastewater Discharges into the Hudson River”
Riverkeeper welcomes Senator Pete Harckham and Assembly member Dana Levenberg to discuss their legislation that would put a stop to any planned discharge into the Hudson River. The bill (S.5181/A.5338) would prohibit, “directly or indirectly, to throw, drain, run or otherwise discharge any radiological agent into the waters of the state.”
A groundswell of public voices are objecting to Holtec’s discharges that prioritize profit margins and expediency over the Hudson River and local communities. Riverkeeper supports this call to explore alternatives to dispose of the tritium.
