Indian Point Hearing on Hudson River Fish

Indian Point officials are going to court this month, where state judges will decide whether or not to validate New York officials argument that the cooling system used by the nuclear power plant is killing fish in the Hudson River. According to the environmental group Riverkeeper, the system pulls water from the river to cool the massive reactors, in the process killing billions of fish and their eggs. The solution Riverkeeper has proposed, along with several state officials, is to enact a seasonal shutdown of the plant that would keep fish species safe during their various spawning seasons. The plant’s operator, Energy has proposed a $200 million system that would allow water to be brought in through smaller slots, and protect fish in the process fish in the process. The hearing began on Monday and will continue this month.
