Security and Safety


Despite the federal government’s shameful performance in the wake of mass emergencies, including the need for mass evacuation that hurricanes Katrina and Rita created several years ago, and despite ongoing safety problems at Indian Point, Entergy, its owner, is seeking a 20-year license extension for both reactors.

On April 26th, 2007, former Governor Eliot Spitzer formally requested that the NRC conduct an Independent Safety Assessment (ISA) at the Indian Point nuclear power plant. His call was backed by New York’s Congressional delegates including Representatives John Hall (D-NY), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Nita Lowey (D-NY), and Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) and then-Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), who introduced legislation in February 2007 that would require an in-depth review of Indian Point’s vital safety and mechanical systems, spent fuel pools, and radiological emergency evacuation plans.
