On April 6, 2017, deep fog descended on Niantic.
The good news: The view of Millstone was obscured and could not be seen by health-conscious visitors on the Boardwalk.
The bad news: fog creates temperature inversions which trap pollutants, such as Millstone’s routine, continuous radiation releases, close to the ground where people breathe.
The ugly news: Millstone Unit 2 is in its dirtiest period of a refueling outage, releasing greater-than-usual rad waste to the air and water.
