America’s Little Fukushima: Nuclear Plant Leaking ‘Uncontrollable’ Amounts of Radioactive Waste Into Drinking Water of 23 Million New Yorkers
An investigation recently called upon by New York governor Andrew Cuomo after the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant reported nuclear material leaking into the areas groundwater reveals a staggering 80% increase in contamination over previous samples. Reported as a “disaster waiting to happen” experts suggest the immediate deactivation of the facility located just 25 miles north of New York City to halt the further contamination of 23 million people’s water.
The plant which is owned and operated by Entergy has experienced and reported leaks in the past but one iron worker who worked at the facility is unsurprised citing: “I was kind of shocked at how decrepit the facility seemed.” upon receiving work there. More troubling though is that the official numbers reported of the most recent samples may not be nearly as accurate as samples from other locations which reported results as much as “65,000 percent times” the readings taken before the Cuomo’s investigation.
