'Catastrophe waiting to happen': Sanders wants to close nuclear plant 25 miles from NYC | 04 April 2016 | The continued operation of the “decaying” 40-year-old Indian Point nuclear power plant up the Hudson River from New York City “makes no sense,” said Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders two weeks before the New York State presidential primary. The two, 1970s-era Indian Point nuclear reactors, situated about 25 miles (40 km) north of New York City and within 50 miles of 20 million residents, have come under increased scrutiny of late as the facility has experienced nine occurrences of technical problems in the past year or so. A tritium water leak in recent months sparked new concerns over the plant; US Senator Bernie Sanders has now said that the plant should be closed. Hillary Clinton, Sanders's opponent for the Democratic presidential nomination…[has a] home in Chappaqua, New York, which is within 20 miles of Indian Point. Clinton, though, has never called for the plant's shutdown.
