Welcome to the Indian Point Decommissioning Oversight Board website. This site will provide information on upcoming meetings, reports, correspondence, and other key information related to the work of the Decommissioning Oversight Board.
Community Air Monitoring Plan
Under an agreement approved by the New York State Public Service Commission, Indian Point site owner and decommissioning entity Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC (Holtec) operates a monitoring apparatus for radiological and other potential substances of concern. Much of that monitoring – including at the site perimeter – is expected to conclude in late 2023. Based on input from community members, the local school district, local and State elected officials, and academic and advocacy groups, along with research conducted by agency experts and the Indian Point Decommissioning Oversight Board (DOB) independent technical expert, the DOB confirmed continued air monitoring during the decommissioning of Indian Point beyond 2023 can provide necessary assurance to the community.
To meet that need, the following request for proposals (RFP) was issued on January 9, 2023 seeking environmental consulting services to develop and implement a Community Air Monitoring Plan (CAMP) to be in place during the decommissioning of Indian Point.
