Join Flotilla 2013! Saturday, August 10th, 11am (rain date: Sunday August 11th, 11am). Prospect Street Boat Launch in Hindsdale, NH
The Entergy Corporation continues to pollute the Connecticut River by dumping hundreds of millions of gallons of heated water every day from the Vermont Yankee nuclear facility. This “thermal pollution” destroys aquatic life. Because of high water temperature and low river volume, Entergy was forced to use its cooling towers to cool its reactor last summer. In fact, Entergy has the ability to use those towers continually. Instead, Entergy chooses to pollute our river. This is not acceptable.
What is Flotilla 2013? Quite simply, it is a day to enjoy our river and call attention to
the pollution that threatens it. Boaters (canoes, kayaks and other non-motorized boats) will launch between Brattleboro, VT and Hinsdale, NH. Shore supporters will gather in a shady grove opposite the reactor. After
paddling together towards Vermont Yankee, the flotilla will approach the grove to join shore supporters for a rally with speakers and music. After the event (approximately one hour), people will paddle or drive home. Directions, boat rentals and transportation can be found at www.sagealliance.net.
