We have been keeping you updated on the legal efforts by local residents to make Entergy comply with zoning laws for a nuclear waste dump and related construction at Pilgrim. This project, costing hundreds of millions of dollars, will store high level radioactive waste on the shores of Cape Cod Bay. The project was rubber stamped by the Town of Plymouth’s Building Inspector in 2012.

A group of residents have challenged the zoning permit at Land Court in Boston. At a hearing in June, Entergy tried to get the residents’ case thrown out of court, saying they don’t have a right to bring the suit. A court decision is expected by Labor Day on this issue. Then we will see if we go to trial, or whether Entergy decides it will actually comply with the law — for a change.
