Earthrise attorney Kevin Cassidy Receives Cape Cod Bay Life Preserver Award

March 06, 2017

Earthrise attorney Kevin Cassidy was awarded the Cape Cod Bay Life Preserver Award for 2016 by the Jones River Watershed Association (JRWA). JRWA Executive Director Pine duBois said Cassidy was being recognized for his work on the Pilgrim Nuclear Plant trial in August 2016, which challenged a permit from the Town of Plymouth, MA given to Entergy Corporation authorizing the long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel at the Pilgrim plant located on the shores of Cape Cod Bay. 

“It’s a particular honor to receive this award from JRWA,” Cassidy said. “I have so much respect for work that Pine and her staff does to protect and restore the Jones River watershed and Cape Cod Bay, as well as their effectiveness in addressing larger environmental challenges facing Massachusetts, such as climate change. I look forward to Earthrise’s continued partnership with JRWA in its important work on behalf of the environment in Massachusetts.”
