Pilgrim nuclear plant to do more quake checks | SouthCoastToday.com

PLYMOUTH — Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station will be among the first group of nuclear plants required

to look more closely at their ability to withstand severe earthquake activity.

Updated data from the United States Geological Survey concluded tremors from an earthquake as far

as 400 miles away may be felt at the Plymouth plant.

  During a meeting with Cape Cod Times editorial board Wednesday, William Dean, the Nuclear Regulatory

Commission’s regional administrator, said the 42-year-old Pilgrim won’t be the only plant required to do

further study on the risks of earthquake damage. The list will be announced next week.
