Audio: Opponent of Pilgrim’s license renewal talks about denied contention, vote by NRC commissioner

On Thursday, the Atomic Safety Licensing Board denied a contention filed by the Jones River Watershed Association. The contention related to environmental effects on Atlantic Sturgeon and herring that call the Jones River home, was denied by the panel for failing to satisfy the criteria for reopening a closed record, and failing to satisfy ‘the (late-filed) contention admissibility criteria.’


Programming note: Pine Dubois from the Jones River Watershed Association joined WATD-FM at 8:30 am on Friday morning to talk about the contention.
