World Ocean Day rally at Pilgrim Nuclear

The rally will be held on Sunday at noon outside the security buoys near the Pilgrim facility in Plymouth
After the rally, there will be a picnic at Steven’s Field in downtown Plymouth from 2:00-4:00 pm.

The Pilgrim Coalition and Cape Cod Bay Watch will head to the water to raise awareness of what they say is a major polluter on the Plymouth shore, the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant.

The on-the-water rally to celebrate World Oceans Day and shine a light on the environmental impact on Cape Cod Bay caused by Entergyʼs Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station is at noon.

A picnic at Steven's Field in downtown Plymouth will follow the rally from 2pm to 4pm.

"The facility discharges huge volumes of heated and polluted water into the bay on a daily basis, pollutes groundwater, kills millions of fish each year and is potentially impacting endangered species," the organizers wrote in an event notice.

The forecasts predict Sunday will be a reasonably clear day during a mostly rainy weekend, and an organizer said Friday that the event has not been canceled.

If you don’t have a boat or a sea-worthy kayak you can still support the Flotilla with other paddlers (kayaks, canoes, stand-up boards, etc.) off Steven’s Field from noon to 1:00 pm.
