Statement: Assemblywoman Dana Levenberg Responds to Holtec’s Decision to Pause the May 2023 Releases

Ossining, NY State Assemblywoman Dana Levenberg has released the following statement in response to news that Holtec International has voluntarily paused their plans to release radioactive wastewater next month:

“I am relieved to hear that Holtec has, wisely, decided to stand down from its intention to accelerate the timeline of its discharges into the Hudson River. The elected officials and advocates who have worked overtime with me and my office to demand greater accountability and transparency from Holtec deserve praise for their efforts, particularly over the last week. I am as committed as ever to ensuring that the needs of my constituents are respected throughout this process and urge everyone to maintain their engagement on this issue as it continues to develop.”
