“New York’s highest court ruled Monday that the Indian Point nuclear plant is subject to state coastal waters rules — a potential hurdle in Entergy’s bid to extend the plant’s operating licenses.
The unanimous Court of Appeals ruling said that Entergy must obtain a Department of State permit under the state’s Coastal Zone Management program. Indian Point 2 and 3 are on the banks of the Hudson River, 30 miles north of New York city. . . .”
” . . . As a matter of fact, the Indian Point Nuclear Power Station just outside of New York City is known to be leaking at some points almost uncontrollably. There have been rises of 80% radioactivity in some soil samples near the plant. This not only puts around 23 million people living in the Big Apple at risk should the plant run red, but just the leaking of radioactivity already into the water and environment will lead to many health issues in the future to those exposed.”
