Commission declines to hear Indian Point appeal


  • Commission declines to hear Indian Point appeal

    ALBANY — A federal commission dismissed an appeal from the owner of Indian Point Energy Facility on Thursday, declining to hear arguments on a previous ruling requiring the company to beef up its plan to deal with major accidents.

    Entergy Corp. had appealed to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission seeking to reverse a July decision by the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board. The initial decision required a more intensive review of its accident mitigation measures as it applies for a new, 20-year license for the Buchanan, Westchester County plant.
