Indian Point Campaign Documents and Filings

Clearwater’s July 9, 2012 Safety Contention is based on U.S. Court of Appeals ruling. We have not defined and developed a national repository for spent nuclear waste and the spent fuel pools housed at Indian Point not only constitute an environmental hazard, but a safety hazard that must be evaluated under the Atomic Energy Act (AEA).

The spent fuel pools have become so densely packed that it is impossible to completely inspect them. Because deterioration and difficult maintenance issues have arisen during the initial licensed term for IP2 and IP3, it is only logical that these problems will continue to occur as more spent fuel rods are packed in denser numbers.

The more densely packed these rods become, the more difficult it is to halt nuclear fission.

July 9, 2012: Motion to add a new contention, re: safety analyses for the long-term storage of spent fuel at the Indian Point Energy Center


The New York State Department of Environmental Protection’s imposition of a $1.2 million fine on Entergy marks a new and welcome level of enforcement of public safety requirements at the Indian Point nuclear plant. The DEC fine, which stems a November 2010 transformer explosion, fire, and oil spill into the Hudson River at Indian Point 2, is significantly higher than any the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has imposed on Entergy for non-compliance at Indian Point.
