PILGRIM WATCH REQUEST FOR HEARING ON A NEW CONTENTION REGARDING INADEQUACY OF ENVIRONMENTAL REPORT, POST FUKUSHIMA

In accordance with 10 C.F.R § 2.309 (c)(1) Pilgrim Watch files a new Request for Hearing. The contention reads:
Based on new and significant information from Fukushima, the Environmental Report is inadequate post Fukushima Daiichi. Entergy‘s SAMA analysis ignores new and significant issues raised by Fukushima regarding the probability of both containment failure, and subsequent larger off-site consequences due, in part, to the need for flooding the reactor (vessel, containment, pool) with huge amounts of water in a severe accident, as at Fukushima.
