Westchester County Executive Defends Ban on Radioactive Dumping in Hudson River

Amidst legal challenges, Westchester County Executive George Latimer reaffirms his support for a state law prohibiting the dumping of radioactive wastewater into the Hudson River. The law, aimed at the owner of the Indian Point Energy Center, has faced opposition from Holtec International, sparking a legal battle over jurisdiction and environmental protection.

Latimer emphasizes the significance of the Hudson River as a cherished natural resource, highlighting the responsibility of officials to safeguard it for present and future generations. The law in question prevents the discharge of radioactive material from the Buchanan nuclear plant's decommissioning process into the river.
