MassDPH Requests Entergy Meet Clean-up Standards

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has submitted a request to Entergy Corporation, operator of the Pilgrim Nuclear plant in Plymouth, to reach a specific agreement on clean-up standards related to the decommissioning of the power station.

Specifically, MassDPH is requesting that Entergy comply with the Commonwealth’s unrestricted release level of residual radioactivity of less than 10 millirem per year for all pathways.

State Senator Vinny deMacedo of Plymouth says as the decommissioning of Pilgrim draws closer it is important that the state assert its rights and protects its residents in every way possible and that reaching agreement on the release standard is an important first step in making sure residents are protected once the plant closes.
