Yankee’s thermal discharge permit prompts disagreement between Entergy, state

The honeymoon between Entergy Nuclear and the Shumlin administration appears to be over.

Disagreements between Entergy Nuclear and the Agency of Natural Resources surfaced this week in an exchange of letters over the proposed draft permit for Vermont Yankee’s continuing thermal discharge into the Connecticut River. Entergy wants permission to increase the temperature of the river by up to 13.4 degrees.
