EPA Warns Holtec: Dumping Contrary to Permit Is A Crime

Agency Demands Holtec Provide 90 Days Notice of Dumping; Failure to Comply Could Result in Civil and Criminal Punishments; Compliance "Mandatory," Says Agency

 

Dr. Benjamin Cronin

 

(BOSTON) – Holtec is not allowed to dump radioactive wastewater into Cape Cod Bay contrary to its permit, and must provide at least 90 days notification if it decides to pursue discharge, according to a recent letter from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

In a stern December 5th letter to Holtec Decommissioning International President Kelly Trice, James Chow, Deputy Director of the EPA’s Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Division, was emphatic: Holtec must comply with the law — or face the consequences.

“Among EPA’s duties is the responsibility to ensure compliance with the Act. Representations by  the Company at the November 28, 2022, [Nuclear Decomissioning Citizens Advisory Panel, or NDCAP] meeting appear to contemplate the possibility of  intentional noncompliance with the Act without prior notice,” wrote Chow.
