Status of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station
The Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station (“Pilgrim”) is located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Pilgrim permanently ceased power generation operations on May 31, 2019 and is currently being decommissioned.
Following guidance from the Nuclear Regulatory Committee, the 10 mile Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) around the plant that existed while Pilgrim was operational has been eliminated.
The plans and procedures about an emergency incident at Pilgrim that were previously outlined and disseminated to residents in annual calendars are no longer in effect. Residents who have questions about local community emergency plans should contact their local Emergency Management Director for more information.
