Pilgrim Nuclear and the public’s rights to the shoreline – Opinion

    Is Entergy Corporation legally occupying the public shoreline
    on Cape Cod Bay? That’s the question local residents want
    answered. Entergy’s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station occupies
    about one mile of prime waterfront in Plymouth, near White
    Horse Beach.

    Pilgrim is a nuclear power station that makes electricity. Like
    all traditional power plants, it heats up water to make steam
    to run turbines. Instead of using coal or natural gas, Entergy
    uses a nuclear reactor. It takes in about 510 million gallons
    per day of sea water, heats it up, then dumps it heated and
    polluted back into Cape Cod Bay. Without using water from
    our Bay, Pilgrim cannot operate
