Report: Kingston in nuke accident zone for Indian Point plant
The Albany Times Union is reporting today that if there were a nuclear accident at the Indian Point plant in Westchester County, water, milk, crops and food as far north as Kingston could be checked for radioactivity under federal safety rules.
The Indian Point nuclear power plant is about 45 miles south of Kingston City Hall, on the eastern shore of the Hudson River, and 24 miles north of the New York City boundary.
But an environmental coalition is asking the line be moved farther north, to the boundaries of Greene and Columbia counties.
