Jones River Watershed Association, Inc. (JRWA) and Pilgrim Watch (PW) today filed a third legal challenge in front of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to Entergy’s once-cooling water withdrawals and pollution of Cape Cod Bay.

JRWA and PW moved to reopen the record to file a new contention and request a hearing on new and material information establishing that Entergy’s application for relicensing of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station (PNPS) should be denied because Entergy lacks two state approvals that are prerequisites to relicensing, is violating state and federal water pollution control laws, and the PNPS environmental impact statement is invalid. Without these state approvals, and because it is violating state and federal water pollution laws, PNPS cannot be relicensed because Entergy cannot satisfy NRC regulations.
