Despite a public outcry over the past year, U.S. EPA is still allowing Entergy operate the Pilgrim plant with a Clean Water Act permit that expired 18 years ago. Certainly, none of us would be allowed to operate a vehicle with an expired driver’s license! So why is Entergy allowed to operate Pilgrim with an 18-year expired permit? Last year, EPA promised citizen groups that it would issue a revised permit for public comment by Dec. 2013. EPA broke that promise.
