Entergy's program for environmental compliance and risk management is based on
a three-pronged philosophy: a top-down corporate commitment, implemented by
knowledgeable employees with adequate resources, and backed up with effective
monitoring and reporting.
Entergy's nuclear plants -- both those in the South that mostly serve our
utility companies and those in the Northeast that generate electricity for the
wholesale market -- have very low environmental impacts and challenges. Air
and water emissions are inherently low due to the nature of the technology and
high degree of regulation. Thorough administrative procedures are in place at
each site to control discharges to air, water and land, and to document
corrective actions associated with any of the programs. Also, periodic
self-assessments are held to ensure programs are conducted according to
administrative procedures and regulatory requirements.
