Fight Continues Over Decommissioning Of Plymouth Power Plant

The fight is continuing over how the former Pilgrim Power Station in Plymouth is being decommissioned.

The Enterprise reports the Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel hosted a meeting on September 25th where experts talked about evaporating the facility's wastewater.

They said the amount of radiation being released into the atmosphere would be minimal. Residents objected to the previous plan by Holtec International to discharge the wastewater into Cape Cod Bay. On September 27th, doctors reported higher cancer numbers for Plymouth residents during a board of health meeting.

Harvard University doctor Petros Koutrakis said Massachusetts lawmakers should put a stop to the evaporation plan.

The state health department and the DEP are also investigating.
