Agencies Working to Protect Upper Connecticut River

”The nuclear power plant’s thermal discharge inspired the Watershed Council to establish a series of temperature loggers over the length of the river, with particular attention to the reach from Bellows Falls to Turners Falls, Mass. Temperatures in this reach are directly affected by thermal discharge from Vermont Yankee. The Watershed Council is beginning to use the information collected to create a first- ever database of temperatures in the Connecticut River, meant to also show the long-term effects of climate change on river temperatures.”
