Plymouth: Forum on nuclear waste issues at Pilgrim

Concerned Neighbors of Pilgrim are holding a community forum on Friday spotlighting the Entergy owned Pilgrim Power Plant and what the group calls Entergy’s nuclear waste dump—referring to the dry cask storage facility that’s being built at the plant. Meg Sheehan of EcoLaw, Mary Lampert of Pilgrim Watch and Attorney James Lampert will speak at the forum. They will address such topics as requirements for safer storage and concerns about the location of nuclear waste dry cask storage units on Cape Cod Bay. Heather Lightner is President and a founding member of Concerned Neighbors of Pilgrim: “People should be concerned about the storage of spent fuel because there’s no federal program for spent fuel at the time and most likely the fuel will be located in Plymouth possibly forever.There are environmental concerns related to the dry cask storage facility—we need more details on that.” The forum starts at 1:00 Friday afternoon at Plymouth’s Council on Aging Center.
