Sandy Levine of the Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) has a long history of working to protect the public and environment from Vermont Yankee before the Public Service Board. She has four suggestions you can make at the April 6 PSB Public Hearing on the sale of Vermont Yankee to NorthStar:
- Timing – The timing of the clean-up should be a firm commitment. No vague promise to get the job done sooner.
- Money – Northstar should have financial backing and insurance to cover all costs and contingencies if things do not go as planned.
- Entergy – As the plant owner when it was operating, Entergy should not be off the hook. The site is contaminated and Entergy should remain financially responsible for clean-up.
- Oversight – The clean-up operation should be an open book. Regulators and communities should have access to information about the clean-up during the process.
The hearing will take place at the Vernon Elementary School (across the street from the reactor) on April 6. There will be a presentation at 6pm and comments taken beginning at 7pm. For more info, go to our event page here.
