This kills 300 billion fish, fish larvae, eggs and other aquatic organisms each year. NY State DEC: Indian Point’s 40-year-old design uses massive quantities of Hudson River water when operating. By far the largest single industrial use of water in New York State. Read more from NY’s Clean Water Advocate Riverkeeper.
