Dear Mr. Slater:

As a 43-year resident of Putnam County, 14 miles from Indian Point, I am very concerned about Holtec International’s plan to discharge a million gallons of radioactive water from the fuel pools at Indian Point into the Hudson River this summer.

Senator Pete Harckham and your Assembly colleague Dana Levenberg have introduced legislation (S.5181) to prevent Holtec from discharging the water, in order to protect New York State residents (about 100,000 of whom source their drinking water from the Hudson) from the possibly tragic effects of this planned action.

I am writing to request that you support passage of the bill, and add your voice to the elected officials who are putting the health and safety of Hudson Valley residents over partisanship. No matter what political party people belong to, everyone drinks water. We are striving to protect our children and grandchildren from harm, and we hope you will join us.

I am attaching a fact sheet which I hope you will read. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you for putting the health and safety of the people in the 94th Assembly District first.
