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

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.
