This week the New Hampshire House will vote on a bill that would require the state to monitor radioactive particles in the air on the Seacoast.

The bill, HB 1779, directs the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to oversee the monitoring and publish public reports.

Bill supporters argue that New Hampshire needs to study the possibility that the nuclear power plant in Seabrook has contributed to the pediatric cancer cluster on the Seacoast.

Jun 24, 2016

This week in Hampton, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) held its annual public information meeting where one topic of discussion was the future of the Seabrook Station nuclear power plant.

Currently, NextEra Energy, which owns Seabrook Station, is in the process of extending its license from ending in 2030 to 2050.

Those against the relicensing of Seabrook Station cite concerns related to the concrete degradation--or micro-fractures--found in its structures in the past seven years. They argue that it is not known what dangers such degradation presents to the public.

The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has released the final environmental report on Seabrook Nuclear Station’s license renewal.

In 2010 Seabrook Station applied to the federal government to extend its operating license from 2030 to 2050.

The NRC has concluded, "the [environmental] impacts would not preclude renewing the plant’s license for an additional 20 years."
