CCNR is concerned about the geopolitics, not the technology of enriched uranium.  As the Iranian experience demonstrates, uranium enrichment is a hot-button issue when it comes to nuclear weapons proliferation.  If one envisages a nuclear-weapons-free world as a real possibility, how could one tolerate the continued operation of uranium enrichment...

Fuel Assemblies in Indian Point fuel pool at closure

Fuel Assemblies in Indian Point fuel pool at closure

Going through some old reports I found the 2014 NRC study about storing waste on site.  This was part of their review because of Fukushima after Jaczko was kicked out.  No surprise – their conclusion is that fuel pools are just as safe as dry cask storage. I had forgotten the immense amount of cesium...
Talk of Possible Buchanan Police Merger with County Surfaces

Talk of Possible Buchanan Police Merger with County Surfaces

Could Westchester County be looking to consolidate police services with the Village of Buchanan as it has in the past with the towns of Cortlandt and Ossining and the Village of Mount Kisco? Westchester County Executive George Latimer made reference to that potential partnership during an appearance at a Westchester County Association (WCA) breakfast in...

Towns will be waiting, watching for Indian Point sale in 2019 as they try to balance their future

This is not a good article.  Not only is the 25 % still reliably parroted, but the reporting on CPV is almost as bad as the OLD reporting on IP used to be.  And the article is surrounded by implications that Wind Power is not really a good thing, without saying so, and without elaborating...

Nuclear Information and Resource Service

Dear Friend, We had a major victory last week–stopping nuclear power at the COP24 Global Climate Summit. Thank you for all you did to make that happen, and for celebrating it with us. Now it’s time to gear up for what comes next! Every time we stop nuclear power, you know what happens? We get closer to...

Questions about closing Indian Point and what NYS plans to do

I have found that generally speaking the business point of view is about a decade behind research and what experts in the field are saying.  Neither do they normally take into consideration high level radioactive waste disposal, the cost to water bodies on which the reactors are located, decommissioning at the end of the life...

Why a Citizens Oversight Board?

Our country does not have a well-defined policy in regard to where and how to store high level radioactive waste. Bury it in a big hole someday, somewhere is about as far as we have gotten in determining what to do with plutonium, cesium, and a multitude of radioactive daughter products that are part of...
Indian Point closure will put power supply in flux

Indian Point closure will put power supply in flux

The basic premise of this article is just plain wrong. If you ignore the headline and the first graph you will find the voices of different people from Riverkeeper and Pace laying out the facts and proving that Indian Point has been replaced. You will also find AREA represented without a notation that they are...

Note from Marilyn Elie

Thank you for your enquiry into how to document the lack of profits for Entergy from Indian Point. Entergy has been quite clear in their closing statements to the stock market, their shareholders and in public remarks that they are leaving because they cannot make enough profit in this market. They are closing out all...

Holtec seeks approval to buy, scrap nuclear power plant

CAMDEN – Holtec International is looking to buy up nuclear plants in order to take them down. But environmentalists and elected officials have expressed concerns over the company’s plans to decommission nuclear plants across the country and to store thousands of tons of radioactive waste at a proposed facility in New Mexico. The Camden firm said...

Holtec Files Request to Acquire Pilgrim Nuclear Plant by End of 2019

PLYMOUTH, Massachusetts – Entergy Corp. and Holtec International, through their affiliates, asked the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) today to approve the sale of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station to Holtec after shutdown. Holtec plans to complete decommissioning and site restoration decades sooner than if Entergy completed decommissioning. The companies jointly filed a License Transfer...
An Act of Civil Disobedience

An Act of Civil Disobedience

On October 10, 2016, several of us climbed over the fence surrounding the Spectra pipeline construction adjacent to the Indian Point nuclear power facility on the banks of the Hudson River in Cortlandt Manor, New icYork. The purpose of our civil disobedience was to delay the placement of 42-inch diameter pipes under the Hudson River...

Inspection Report IP2&3 2018

criticality steam coming through the wall of 8″ pipe containment integrity compromised These are words you never want to hear in regard to Indian Point.  The NRC regards all three as green findings… More reasons than ever for watch dogging the reactor and pushing for a COB.
