The Seacoast Anti-Pollution League was created in large part as a response to the Public Service Company of New Hampshire’s announcement of its intent to construct the nuclear power plant in Seabrook. From the plant's inception to its construction and through to today, we have remained steadfast in our mission to educate citizens on the facts of nuclear energy and to protect the health and safety of our fellow citizens when it comes to regulating this industry.
The fact is, we are the people who will suffer the consequences of mismanagement and poor planning, and we are the ones who will pay the cost in the event of a nuclear emergency, so it’s up to us to stay informed and take action.
SAPL has played an essential and ongoing part in keeping Seabrook in check, preventing Seabrook from shrinking the evacuation zone to a harrowing one-mile radius, forcing the plant to end harbor seal deaths caused by their water intake pipes, getting state officials to distribute essential potassium iodide (KI) radiation protection, alerting the public to waste shipment issues and security lapses, and more.
We are here to inform the public of the facts and to keep people apprised of regulatory and legislative issues as they occur. The fact is, we are the people who will suffer the consequences of mismanagement and poor planning, and we are the ones who will pay the cost in the event of an emergency, so it’s up to us to stay informed and take action.
