Montpelier, Vermont – January 9, 2011
The Vermont Public Service Board holds hearings later this week on a request by two environmental groups to shut down Vermont Yankee.
The Conservation Law Foundation and the New England Coalition made the request nearly a year ago after problems with leaking radioactive tritium first came to light. The groups have argued that the plant be shut down until the leaks were fully resolved.
Those hearings run Tuesday through Friday in Montpelier.
