Sep 15, 2013 12:03 am
On Fri., Sept. 13, the New York Department of State extended the comment period for Entergy’s proposal to renew its license to operate its Indian Point nuclear power plant, just south of Peekskill on the tidal Hudson River, for an additional 20 years. Now, comments must be received by 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013. The Department of State must review Entergy’s application to see if it is in compliance with NYS’s Coastal Management Program. Should the Department of State find that the continued operation of the Indian Point Nuclear Facility does not comply, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is prohibited from renewing Entergy’s license. Comments must be submitted to NYS Department of State Attn: Consistency Review Unit, One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, Suite 1010, Albany, NY 12231 or by email to cr@dos.ny.gov. When submitting comments, please reference file number F-2012-1028.
