Gov. Cuomo: Faulty Bolts Discovered at Indian Point Nuclear Facility
Governor Andrew Cuomo addressed state findings Tuesday afternoon about the Indian Point Nuclear facility in the Buchanan region.
He says, "hundreds of faulty bolts were discovered within the reactor at the Indian Point Unit 2 Plant. This is the latest in a long series of incidents that raise deep concerns about the management, maintenance and equipment standards at this plant."
The governor assured state residents that there is no immediate danger to public health and safety. Yet, he says that this, "troubling news further validates the State’s ongoing investigation into the operations of this aging power plant and our position that it should not be relicensed."
Cuomo says, "New York State will continue to investigate every facet of the plant’s operations and safety preparedness while ensuring that these critical defects are addressed immediately.”
