Endorse the Campaign for Successful Decommissioning
Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station has closed, and the decommissioning process has begun. This is an important step, but it is not the end of the story. There is buried hazardous waste at Pilgrim and there have been numerous radioactive leaks. The likelihood of an accident decreases when the reactor shuts down and the fuel is in dry casks; but risk remains at least until all spent fuel leaves the site, the reactor is decommissioned, and the Pilgrim site has been cleaned-up.
Two outstanding questions about decommissioning are how much residual radioactive and hazardous waste will remain onsite and will Pilgrim’s owner have enough money to properly do the job? To keep our communities safer both during and after decommissioning, it is important that whoever owns Pilgrim meets the goals set forth below. The pending petitions of the Commonwealth and Pilgrim Watch to intervene in Entergy’s request to transfer all of its licenses and liability to Holtec may help. But we all need to do our part.
