Call to Action — NRC Public Meeting May 14

IP_NoFukushimaHudson_AJones_1-4The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding its Annual Public Meeting about Indian Point’s 2012 safety record on May 14, and we need your help to send the agency a loud and clear message:


D
on’t Let it Happen Here!  

Come out and join us in voicing your concerns. Don’t let the NRC continue to rubber stamp the assessment of this old and dangerous nuclear power plant in our backyards.

WHAT: NRC Annual Public Meeting and Safety Assessment

WHEN: MAY 14, 6:00PM to 9:00PM

WHERE: Double Tree Hotel 455 South Broadway, Tarrytown (Map)

In the wake of the Fukushima disaster, the NRC promised it would “learn the lessons” of the accident and reexamine regulations and procedures at US nuclear plants with a view toward preventing similar ones here.  More than two years later, area residents remain acutely concerned that little or nothing has changed to improve public safety regarding Indian Point.

Join Clearwater and our partner groups in calling the NRC to account for its failure to address the real safety issues at Indian Point – evacuation planning, dangerous storage of nuclear waste and other critical issues that are not being addressed in relicensing but demand attention.

Indian Point is located at 25 miles north of New York City on the Hudson River at the intersection of two earthquake faults, the Ramapo fault and the Stamford-to-Peekskill fault line. 20 million people live or work within 50 miles of Indian Point, yet experts say that evacuation plans are severely deficient.
