Pilgrim Legislative Advisory Coalition advocates to protect the economic, environmental, health and safety interests of
Massachusetts citizens through responsible public policy on nuclear energy.
The Pilgrim Legislative Advisory Coalition was formed in July of 2015 by a group of Cape Cod citizens concerned about the safety of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth,
Cape Cod has a particular concern about Pilgrim. In the event of a radiation release, residents as well as any visitors who happened to be on the Cape at the time, would be cut off from
any realistic evacuation route. The Sagamore bridge over the Cape Cod Canal would be closed to facilitate the evacuation of Pilgrim's 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone. The Bourne bridge would be
closed 'as-needed' for the same purpose which means that it would almost certainly be closed as well.
At the time of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the United States advised any US citizens in Japan who were within a 50 mile radius of Fukushima to evacuate. A 50 mile radius from Pilgrim --the
same flawed design as the reactors at Fukushima -- includes all of Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, as well as an area from Gloucester to Providence Rhode Island, INCLUDING GREATER BOSTON.
Many Boston residents are not aware of this potential danger.
