Abstract

This report was requested by Representative Anne Gobi to discuss the benefits and risks associated with Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station and develop recommendations based on the data collected. Concern about the safety of the plant increased after the accident that happened at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant on March 11, 2011. Extensive research was done to formulate recommendations on the safety of the plant and its evacuation plans.
