Food and Water Watch along with other groups is sponsoring a forum on keeping Indian Point’s radioactive waste out of our air and water. This is important! Please forward to interested others and especially to your elected officials.

Monday, November 20, 4 PM to 5 PM.

About this event

In August, Governor Hochul signed the Save the Hudson bill, which makes it illegal to dump the radioactive waste produced from Indian Point into the Hudson River. This was a huge victory — but what happens now with that waste and what can we do to make sure it doesn’t end up in our air or water?

Join us on Monday, November 20th, for a forum on how to keep Indian Point’s radioactive waste from getting into our air and water. This applies to other nuclear power plants as well.

This forum will give you an update on where we are now and will feature decommissioning expert Arnie Gundersen, Chief Engineer at Fairewinds Associates, who suggests one way on how to keep Indian Point’s radioactive safe and on-site. For background, see Arnie Gundersen’s video here:

Our grassroots movement successfully pressured Governor Hochul to protect our river from the toxic dumping. Now we’ll need to again raise our voices to ensure none of this waste is released into New York’s air or water and that we move forward with the safe decommissioning of the Indian Point plant.

Holtec releases a new decommissioning schedule with an eight year delay.

“Holtec said it is weighing what to do with the wastewater at Indian Point, which closed in 2021. It said it has not ruled out legal action against either or both states. A company representative, Patrick O’Brien, said the decommissioning schedule took years to develop and that “with systems and buildings being interconnected, any changes” impact the entire plan.”

Watch the November 20th forum, 4PM to 5 PM, with Arnie Gunderson for real answers to the questions Holtec is posing about what to do with radioactive waste from Indian Point.
