WBUR,flickr

Massachusetts activists have announced plans to sue the owners of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station for allegedly polluting Cape Cod Bay.  The activists, represented by Ecolaw, notified the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday of their intent to sue plant owner Entergy Corp. They accuse the Plymouth plant of damaging the local ecology by discharging chemical pollution and water heated far above allowed standards.

The activists allege Pilgrim has more than 33,000 violations of the Clean Water Act since 1996 and say Entergy could be liable for $831 million in penalties.  Ecolaw also intends to sue the state for allegedly allowing Entergy to damage the environment.  Pilgrim was relicensed this year after more than six years of review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  (Associated Press)
