In a letter received anonymously on August 21 by Cape Downwinders and MA Department of Public Health, a Pilgrim insider reveals Holtec is using "forced evaporation" to discharge their radiologically contaminated industrial wastewater into our airways!
According to this well detailed letter, plant engineers were directed by Holtec's site Vice-President to design and install an unapproved radwaste processing method which exposes both the workers and public to "radioactively contaminated airborne water vapor". This system was installed in opposition to Holtec's own Plant Radiation Protection personnel.
Along with tritium, there are a lot more dangerous radionuclides in that vapor purposefully raining down on our communities today-Cesium-137, Strontium 90, Plutonium, Cobalt-60, etc., all impacting our health, particularly that of the fetus, infant, child, and woman.
This is another clear example of why WE DON'T TRUST HOLTEC. They came to Plymouth promising openness and transparency and we got neither. It's a bad indicator when a possible insider has to become a whistleblower and risk all to protect our communities with the truth of what's really happening behind the fence.
How long has this process been going on? Why isn't the state monitoring direct gaseous emmissions? How can Holtec be implementing unapproved methods without any oversight? WHERE IS THE OVERSIGHT?
HOLTEC doesn't care about worker or public safety, only the bottom line by decommissioning Pilgrim in the most cheap, fast, and unsafe way possible to get at the Trust Fund dollars. This greedy and untrustworthy company needs full independent oversight by the state.
What's blowing in the wind? OUR RESISTANCE TO HOLTEC!
THANK YOU TO THIS BRAVE AND CARING WHISTLEBLOWER!!
We owe you a debt of gratitude for your honesty and courageous stance against Holtec!
