Tell your NY elected officials to support S6893/A7208 and stop reckless radioactive dumping into the Hudson River.
Holtec International, the firm responsible for decommissioning the Indian Point nuclear power plant, has stated that it will resume discharging radioactive wastewater into the Hudson River. New legislation introduced (S6893/A7208) by state Senator Pete Harckharm and Assemblymember Dana Levenberg, with the support of a growing list of co-sponsors, will put a stop to any planned discharge into the Hudson River.
The contaminated wastewater must be securely stored on the Indian Point site while methods to isolate it are evaluated. It’s time to draw the line against using the Hudson as a dumping ground for nuclear waste including tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen present in the wastewater. Ingestion of tritium is linked to cancer, and children and pregnant women are most vulnerable.
Join the groundswell of public voices objecting to Holtec’s discharges and take a stand to protect the Hudson River and local communities.
