NRC public meeting on Indian Point decommissioning activities report

July 29, 2021: 6:00PM to 9:00PM
Sleepy Hollow Hotel & Conference Center, 455 South Broadway, Tarrytown, NY map

Indian PointThe Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold a comment-gathering public meeting on the evening of July 29 in Tarrytown, NY.

We urge members of the public to attend this public hearing on Indian Point’s Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR), which describes the decommissioning plan and cost estimates. See below for information on how to participate by phone.

Many of our concerns with Holtec’s plan were addressed in the joint agreement we reached in April. Now we must demand that all relevant provisions from this agreement be incorporated into the PSDAR’s financial projections, including Holtec’s commitments to:

  • Maintain at least $400 million in the Decommissioning Trust Fund for the next 10 years, and $360 million until partial site release from the NRC;
  • Return at least 50 percent of the money recovered from the Department of Energy for spent fuel management costs to the Decommissioning Trust Fund (and up to 100 percent in case of emergency financial need);
  • Provide regular financial and project reports to New York State and local entities, and maintain a website to facilitate public access to this information;
  • Clean up of the site’s radiological contamination to the New York State standard of 10 mrem, instead of the federal standard of 25 mrem.

We must also continue to urge the NRC to closely monitor all decommissioning activities, to make sure that Holtec adheres to the PSDAR and keeps its promises to the public.

There will be a call-in conference line for the meeting that will be moderated by an operator.
