Within the proposed draft Protective Action Guide (PAG) for drinking water following a nuclear accident are numerous apparent anomalies and contradictions that should and could be identified and rectified. Therefore, the Sierra Club, with over 2 million members and supporters respectfully requests that the EPA extend the public comment period, scheduled to end July 25, 2016, to November 25, 2016, a 120 day extension.
EPA-HQ-OAR-2007-0268-0329 Sierra Club Rad Water Comment Extension Request
Emphasis our own. Sierra Club comment: https://www.regulations.gov/contentStreamer?documentId=EPA-HQ-OAR-2007-0268-0329&attachmentNumber=1&disposition=attachment&contentType=pdf This is apparently being ignored by the US EPA.

The Sierra Club is an environmental organization in the United States. It was founded on May 28, 1892, in San Francisco, California, by the Scottish-American preservationist John Muir, who became its first president.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sierra_Club

Mair’s testimony re Indian Point: http://www.clearwater.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/Summary-Clearwaters-Indian-Point-EJ-Contention_testimony_10.23.12_MJG_FINAL.pdf
An excerpt: “Evacuation: If there is an incident, he said, you can’t leave Peekskill from the south because you’d be going toward Indian Point, and toward the denser part of the county. If you head west, there’s the Hudson, so it’s no option. To head northwest, you’d find that Route 202/6 becomes a narrow, two-lane, windy road, with switchbacks and hairpin turns. You can’t go this way. The other viable route is Route 202/6 East — these routes are wider, four lanes, but here you’d be heading through a heavily populated suburban population.
