On March 18, Riverkeeper (RvK) submitted comments opposing the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) review of the environmental impacts of Indian Point, which recommended relicensing the plant. Refuting NRC’s claims that the plant poses no significant public or environmental health threats, RvK’s comments state that the plant kills more than a billion fish every year; its spent fuel pools are leaking radioactive water; it is vulnerable to terrorist attack; and, it is amassing thousands of tons of nuclear waste that will remain on the site for decades.

RvK continues to build its legal challenge against relicensing in preparation for a formal hearing in spring 2010.
