Governor Cuomo asked the Federal Government to Stop the Algonquin Pipeline near Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant. He ordered an immediate independent safety analysis due to the proximity to the troubled Indian Point Nuclear Power Plants in Buchanan, New York.
Activists are rejoicing over this. Courtney Williams, a spokesperson for ResistAIM said “We strongly support the Governor’s decision to conduct this independent assessment given the ongoing public safety concerns of siting this massive pipeline adjacent to Indian Point and the repeated incidents of fires and contaminated water leaks that are happening there. We share the Governor’s concerns and hope his administration will instruct the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to reevaluate the water quality certificate in light of these ongoing problems.”
