Finally, some common sense.

Massachusetts State regulators have denied a permit modification sought by the company in charge of decommissioning the nuclear power plant in Plymouth to discharge 1.1 million gallons of industrial wastewater into Cape Cod Bay.

After years of local opposition to the company’s discharge plan, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection issued the draft determination earlier this week. Cape Cod Bay is a protected ocean sanctuary under the state’s Ocean Sanctuaries Act, which prohibits dumping industrial waste into protected state waters.
