Nuke Matters: Effects of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station on Cape Cod Bay
Cape Cod Bay Watch is dedicated to protecting the species, habitat and health of Cape Cod Bay. The most immediate goal is to educate the public about impacts of Entergy’s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station—especially its "once-through cooling" system. This system uses over a half-billion gallons of water from the bay every day, killing marine life in the process and dumping the water, heated 32⁰F degrees warmer and polluted with toxic chemicals and radioactive materials, back into the bay. In our opinion, Pilgrim Station does not have a valid permit to operate in this manner and is violating numerous state and federal water quality standards. Despite this, the facility was recently re-licenced to operate for another 20 years.
Pine duBois, Executive Director of the Jones River Watershed Association, President of Jones River Landing Environmental Heritage Center, and Cape Cod Bay Watch Partner, has been a local environmental advocate for over thirty years.
Karen Vale, Campaign Coordinator at Cape Cod Bay Watch, is a Wildlife Biologist and has a decade of experience with wildlife and natural resource research and campaigning.
