To Protect Our Water and Health
Before October 27, 2012
Elected Officials Must Tell DEP And DRBC
To Make Changes To Limerick Nuclear Plant’s
DRAFT Permits For Water Use and Pollution

Current DRAFT Permits Will Increase Unprecedented Threats and Harms To Water Resources Across Parts of Six PA Counties, from Schuylkill to Philadelphia.
­ Now is the time elected officials must speak up to protect their constituents’ rights to safe water and a healthier future.
­ Remind Elected Officials Limerick Operations Have Major Harmful Impacts on Water and Health for Almost Two Million People Pottstown to Philadelphia
­ Those who remain in denial and refuse to speak up to protect our water and health are clearly not on our side. They are protecting Exelon’s profits.

Ask elected officials to tell DEP and DRBC they support changes recommended by ACE for Limerick Nuclear Plant’s DRAFT water permits.
­ See list of changes below. MOST IMPORTANT! Exelon must filter Limerick Nuclear Plant’s radioactive discharges and mine pit water pumping into the Schuylkill River, or Limerick Nuclear Plant’s water use and pollution permits should be revoked and Limerick should close.

Tom Corbett has the greatest responsibility in the outcome of Limerick’s permits. Corbett is a major player in DRBC hierarchy and appoints the head of the PA DEP, who determines DEP’s policy. Corbett appointed a former Exelon attorney to head up PA DEP. This is a clear conflict of interest that can have long-term harmful impacts on our water and health. Tell Corbett to protect us, not Exelon’s profits.

DEP and DRBC Will Accept Written Comments
On Limerick Nuclear Plant’s Water Use And Discharges

DEADLINE – OCTOBER 27, 2012 5:00 P.M.

Both agencies are reducing Exelon’s accountability for Limerick Nuclear Plant’s pollution discharges, the worst threat to the Schuylkill River.

These permits look like they were written by Exelon with loopholes, exemptions, elimination of long-standing restrictions, and even less regulation.

Despite evidence of unprecedented threats and harm, these permits fail to reduce risks. Neither permit can, or will, protect vital public water resources and public health. Changes must be made.

1. Remove the EXEMPTION for Total Dissolved Solids from Outfall 001, which transport radiation and cooling tower toxics into the river

2. Instead of EXEMPTION from Clean Water Laws, require Exelon to FILTER TDS from Outfall 001 with reverse osmosis or CLOSE Limerick

3. Require strict enforcement and meaningful penalties for all Safe Drinking Water violations

4. Require independent, comprehensive testing

5. Require Exelon to maintain all records permanently, not just 3 years.

6. Require IMMEDIATE PUBLIC NOTIFICATION of radioactive spills
